Meanwhile I'm reaching for the scissors, pencils and tape as the photos themselves have just become "art supplies". Who knows, it could be fun...again...

Somehow it amused me today to see the painted chair sitting in front of the painting OF a chair. What's with all those roses anyway? I guess they amused me at the time. The ones IN the painting were because that's what the upholstry fabric looked like (more or less). But there's no real reason for them on the painted chair other than habit or the return to an old theme like a forgotten reflex.
The fact that I've moved the chair off the drawing table means that I'm morte or less ready to finish it and move on to something else. I'm considering it progress of a sort as there are so many other things that a person can do with a day and the resources availabe. All things worth considering, Don't you think so?

It's easy to be creative with unlimited resources...at least I assume so although it's not a situation I'm familiar with. Today my inspiration came from stuff most people would throw away (some old, faded silk flowers and some pages out of a garden catalog) Yes they did go to trash and recycling after I finished with them but for a while they inspired the drawings on letters for a couple more of my favorite people. As always, I'm making the best of things around here and hoping for better ones.

I enjoyed splashing a bit of paint over this small canvas panel I've been woking on for a while. Can't decide whether to let it be or keep "playing" with it.
The other small piece turned up in a corner while I was cleaning the basement. I haven't quite decided what to do with that either but am looking forward to heading out to the studio and seeing what happens next.

"playing" with an old sketchbook, pencils, and a garden catalog that came in today's mail to make the letters I write more interesting for all of us.
I may not have a lot going on to write about but I can make it fun to look at and sometimes that's enough and allows us all to spend the day together and keep our minds off our problems for a while.

I'm still painting that child size chair but really starting to enjoy it this time around and seem to be staying in more or less the same style on each section of the chair. The main change is that instead of working all over the piece I'm focusing on one small area at a time.
As I worked today I was listening to some old cassette tapes I found in a box in the basement, checking and sorting them to see which of them can be sold so I was able to do a couple of jobs at once...and enjoy doing it.
