From the studio
I did not get any yard work done today before the claw truck came and they don't come again for two weeks, so I bypassed yard work today. However, I did work in the studio. Here are the pieces I have been working on.
This is the newest piece. As you can tell, it is not finished and I don't even know what I will do to finish it at this point. To me it is rather Jane -ish or Cathy-ish or something related to English authors of a certain era. Vicki thinks it is Cinderella-ish - the Disney version, not the German. No toes cut off here.
I made the background of this piece some time ago - maybe a year. It isn't a painting on its on, so I decided to do something with it. As you can see, this isn't finished either. You can see that I have chalked in some leaves and there might even be another blossom somewhere. Working with white and different values of it was interesting. I am looking forward to finishing this.
This is an old piece that I reworked. Sandy said that we will work on what to do with our "dogs" and this was one. You might have seen it before. The water is actually greener. I like it better than before; it is a place no one has ever seen unless they have been inside my head but I like the peacefulness of it.
On another note, Dean gave Jackson a bath yesterday and all the little critters in the neighborhood now have material for their nests for the winter. Jackson is evidently blowing his coat and his fur is all over the yard and the neighborhood. And I thought that Labradoodles weren't supposed to shed. He get more Labra and less Doodle every year. Bella, on the other hand, remembers that her father was a poodle and sheds very little. She is such a good girl.
Cool night, warm days. Wonderful!!How is it at your house?
