After spending most of the morning fluffing around online and attempting to tidy the house i decided to be a little more constructive with my time and got out my paints instead. This is the result, i am only semi happy with them, i still seem to be a little too precious with my brush strokes. I want to have a more “painterly” style but it is really hard to let go of detail. Anyway, every painting i do i feel i get better.
“Pink and Blue” 9×12 oil on canvas board
“Yellow Jars” 11×14 oil on canvas board
in other news, i am loving this song by Florence & the Machine. I’ve been a fan of hers for ages and every new song she releases just get better and better.
Tuesdays are out kid free nights, so tonight we are off to Bunnings. I know, how exciting huh LOL…but the prospect of browsing the aisles with no children is divine, i also have a gift voucher to spend which makes it even more fun. The only thing better than shopping is shopping with someone else’s money. I have no idea what i want to get either. I kind of want to get some pretty pots to put flowers in, but i was also thinking of getting some stuff to set up a vege patch…but it’s the wrong time of year for that. Or i could get a bird bath…i’ve always wanted one of them. Or i could come home with something completly unexpected…who knows.
