Happy Mother's Day! Back to my brushes.

Painting today. The light was so awful yesterday I wisely spent my time preparing my next painting instead of working on the current project. But today the sun comes out intermittently, and I am able to continue. For such a small painting, it is taking F O R E V E R. Is it worth the effort... I feel it is. Back to my brushes.
"There is, after all, a kind of happiness in unhappiness, if it's the right unhappiness." - Jonathan Franken
Helped out at a fundraiser today so no time to paint. I did add a new documentary review on "The Private Life of a Masterpiece: Masterpieces of the Twentieth Century". Remember, the new ones are at the bottom of my documentary review page. Back to my brushes.

I was going to post a new photo, but have run out of time. Great light and I am painting today. Back to my brushes.
"There's no such thing as writer's block. That was invented by people in California who couldn't write." - Terry Pratchett
Happy May Day! Have had company for the last couple of days therefore I have no painting news to impart. Spent a day at the museum with friends from Texas and had a terrific time. They didn't leave empty-handed from the gift shop either. And neither did I, having finally persuaded myself to purchase the business card holder I had looked at on many occasions. Kept hoping a color that would suit my work, like an intense orange would magically appear; but I finally settled on purple. It is a clever design, simple and lightweight. The clincher is that it contains no magnets. Think about it. Magnets near credit cards equals dreadful mistake. Not sure, but it's probably not the best thing near a cell phone either. You can check that out for yourself. Back to my brushes.
