Happy New Year
I wish everyone a Happy New Year. May it be filled with hope and more surprises than you can imagine!
Today, I cleaned off my desk and was able to move things around enough to pick up a painting I started a while back. I did get more done on it. If you are wondering why I haven't painted anything around this owl it's because it's going to actually be a collage element in the painting. I just started the tree that the owl will be in. He'll be sitting in the hole of the trunk. I put down a wash of color but now I'm going to add light molding paste for texture before I continue with more layers of color. Anyway, it felt good to be creating but I need a larger table! I can't wait to have my studio back although having it set up again will be a while. I have 40... yes, FORTY 12 gal. plastic bins packed with supplies and that's not all, folks! There are things that aren't in bins and then, there's book cases of stuff along with iris carts and drawers of stuff. Not to mention and huge metal rack of plastic drawers and more stuff out on my carport! And my new studio space is small compared to my last space so, I have to go through everything to see what I can part with, what will go in functional storage in the storage shed, and what will need to be inside the studio for regular use. It is a huge project for sure but I can't wait to have my own room again! I think I'll get started over the weekend.
Tomorrow, Sam is having one of his best friends over to play. He and Daniel were in class together for 3 years but he moved and is not pretty far away from us. They still talk on the phone but haven't seen each other in a few months so they are looking forward to being together tomorrow.
I am NOT staying up until midnight. No, I am not one of THOSE people. I can't wait to get in bed! It's only 7:20 and I'm watching to clock. My boys are in the middle of a movie and when it's over and I get them in bed, I'm going too! So, for all of you who stay up watching the ball drop, enjoy!
