Ah Saturday, so much love for Saturday!
Here's a bit of what I'm up to in photo essay style ;). I'm working on a big "adventures in paper marbling" post,
and still doing some clean up from that above mentioned marbling!
Reflected on some recent paintings in progress and realized that no matter how badly I want to paint, I need to wait for daylight, or set up better lighting so that I am not displeased (as I am today) with the colors that looked so good when mixed in the dark. I went to town on three different paintings and frankly, wish I hadn't. They'll all be worked on some more of course, just sometimes wish I could excercise restraint!
Developing patience when painting is something I'm working on. Add it to the list.
I am however, still loving the colors of the recently made garlands, even though those were made by the light of the moon too. We're having a non-traditional Fall over here and I like it!
And I still love the colors on the big painting I made for our dining room with a little bit help (it was worth the arm twisting I had to do) from my family. I want to get some more giant panels built, I'm craving painting really big.
Taking stock of the recent stitching, progress on this one is slow and steady. I do have more of these larger sized embroidery sampler patterns restocked in my etsy by the way.
A friend of mine just started up Project Life, and after she came over yesterday to show me her album, and talk all about it, I found myself inspired to open it up and work on it again. I stayed up super late editing and printing photos and am wanting to keep at it! It's always fun when I make the time. I am definitely doing it next year, but am going to develop some habits and processes that will make it easier for me to stay caught up. (More on that thinking to come.)
Always like to enjoy a little time outside on Saturday morning.
