It's almost the weekend

Well, this is my first post since Blogger decided to change things, so watch out.  Things might go wonky.  This week I have been trying to keep DH quiet so he can heal from some outpatient surgery.  Nothing too serious, but he does have several stitches and since the area is on his back, I am playing Nurse Suzy.

I have also been re-organizing my art studio.  Since I'm having such fun with pastel painting, I will be putting away some of the mixed media items that I haven't used for a while.  I did decide on my next painting and have been doing some preliminary sketches preparing for that.  I have an old snapshot that I took years ago and I think it will make a pretty good painting.

You may be able to tell that something has been spilled on the photo and the house is tipping backward due to the angle I took the picture, but I think it will be fine for my purposes.

Well, that's all for me until I actually do another painting.

Take care and have a great weekend.

Best to DH...face down with your wifey waiting on ya! Get well soon, Dude!
The photo would make a great picture --maybe do the porch ceiling in a nice robins egg blue and add in a butterfly or two...or maybe a very small pink flamingo just for giggles!
Keep on working!

Love this pretty photo! Reminds me of my front porch on the house we used to have. I did exactly what Peri said, and painted the ceiling a menagerie of sky blue colors and sponged on clouds with some light pinks and pale yellows to make it look like the sky. I miss that house alot. Hope your husband is feeling lots better by now!!
