I planted my sunflowers today and I must say, gardening is hard work… Seems as though everywhere I dug, there was a giant root trying to prevent my beautification plans. The rewards will be great and well worth the back strain, so I persisted and won the competition for the perfect spot for the huge summer blooms. This summer I will really love sitting on my back porch watching them sway in the wind, their giant, brightness smiling at me. I sowed in a spot that is also visible from the front so I will see them welcoming me home every day, making me even more glad to be back from wherever I go.
Working on “Bob” today with good results. Happy. Using my new Kolinsky sable brushes, so it is more enjoyable than it has been with my worn out ones. I lost all my old good brushes during one of our moves a couple of years ago and have been making due with cheaper, less durable ones. I must be rough on them because I lose a few heads in the mineral spirits on occasion… not good for keeping up with momentum.
I will post “Bob” soon to show you, seeing as the end of the month is growing near. I will be done. More rewards for me 🙂 It is raining outside and the wind is talking to me… no need for music in the studio today. I will listen and just paint.
