Hello, spring? You’re a little cold for this time of year, aren’t you? Wanna warm it up just a bit? I’m sort of in need of exercise and it’s not exactly motivating me when you’re cranking out temperatures of 35 degrees or below every morning. Yeah. If I have to put on so much as a hat, I’m not walking outside–or inside for that matter. You can find me curled up in cozy sweats and a fuzzy blanket, sipping my hazelnut coffee like my life depended on it. If I’m energetic I might stand up and paint for a while. So yah, enough with the frigid weather.
Painting–coincidentally this is what I’ve been doing a lot of the past 2 nights until 1:30 a.m. (I will not mention how absolutely dead I feel the next morning when the kids wake up at the crack of dawn.) It all started with this:
No, I haven’t read the book (are you kidding? I’ve got enough on my plate what with having to brush my teeth, like, everyday, among other things), but when I saw the cover of it, I was instantly inspired. I love grungy circus stuff–it’s strangely pretty, no? So far I’ve done 2 paintings, acrylic on wood, roughly 13in X13in each, and I am LOVING THEM. And because I have no idea where the camera cord-connector thingy is, you all won’t see them until I remember to ask Cheyenne where she keeps it. (Her camera, her cord.) But yeah. So, so excited.
And now, back to painting.
