Technical Difficulties

... Or maybe not so technical but difficulties none the less. Our neighbors are having construction done and in the process our phone line was cut. So since Friday we've had no phone or internet. Just got it all back and am now basking in the electronic glow of our computer. Hooray for being connected again!

Abstract Sunflowers

So here is what I ended up doing with the red canvas. Instead of doing a literal translation of either eggs or sunflowers I went with sunflowers that look vaguely like eggs. Sort of. Anyway I just started painting and stopped thinking too much about it and ended up with this. It's not quite as bright as it comes across on my screen but it gives you an idea.

This picture is a little blurry but the color comes across a little more true. Also I think you can see the thickness of the paint a little more. I used a pretty thick application.

We Now Have Tomatoes

Woo Hoo! We finally have tomatoes with more than we know what to do with on the way. In celebration I've taken a semi-fancy pants picture of the first tomato harvest of the year.

On another note I finished the red canvas a few days ago and will try to get some pictures up tomorrow. Stay tuned...

Back Home

I'm officially back home from visiting my parents while my husband was gone for job training. Now we get to have the fun of wading our way through a massive pile of laundry. While I'm waiting on cycles to finish I'm thinking I could paint a little. Probably not a good idea to swing back and forth between freshly clean clothes and messy paints but hey - a girl has to live on the edge sometimes. I just feel like I need to get going with the painting because it's just too easy to sit and go back and forth between ideas. I just need to mix up some paints and go.
