If I would just buckle down and get back to it I could finish the painting of the sugar glider-creature and be done with it. But, no...I have to find a whole laundry list of things to do instead. I swear I put more energy into avoiding painting than I do in the actual painting.
But I got a bunch of housework done as well as tweaking the plaster cloth hatchling guy.
And I thought while I was in the room I would secure the counterweight I found for the croco-creature -- but my hands are not strong enough to bend the metal strap thing. I will have to get thinner metal strappy stuff...or have someone with strong hands cut it and bend it. I can use the drill to secure it.
I painted this cat a long time ago (like when I first moved here) and it was very flat looking. Juana was kind enough to snazz it up a bit and I hung it in my studio bathroom...I could see it from my desk. But now I am kind of tired of him and I am looking for a place to move my ceramic tiles so I took him off the wall and decided to repurpose the canvas (and thus avoid painting once more).
|Juana and I both like the color of mercurochrome -- this paper reminds me of it|
|This phrase jumped off of the page at me. I thought what an odd thing to have in a children's story. It had to do with a haystack or something. I think I will title this collage "Ought I not to Burn"?|
|It will be interesting (as always) to see how this one turns out after the matte medium dries.|
That's enough for now. Who knows...I might end up painting later on after all.
