Salt and Pepper Shakers at Applebee'sI thought I might paint my dinner, but I ordered a messy looking, delicious salad, and we had to hurry to make the 7:00 show. We saw The King's Speech. Great movie. And it was ladies' night - $4.25!
Today in class we worked on loosening up and letting the painting paint itself. We painted with clear water and then put in color. Even though it was a simple geranium stem and blossom on a small piece of paper, it is still hard to relinquish control and let it happen. Watercolor on its own usually does better than I do, so I try to stand back and see what happens.
Sooooo cold here. The wind is blowing, the Bay is frozen, the sky is gray. Every year I complain about the cold, but I'm not going anywhere. I like the slow pace of winter here - then I like the fast pace of summer. Perfect.
