I brought my camera today to the swamp. Today was the day to capture some awesome pics. I’m going to charge the batteries (my backup battery is dead also). I used my cell phone to capture this beehive. I think I’ll skip out of art class today and go back.
My grand children love to paint. I broke out the acrylics, they set up 2 easels & grabbed a canvas to
paint on & spent hours painting. They also learned how to mix colors to get the exact color they wanted (they were amazed they could do this). I highly recommend a canvas drop cloth. I bought a 9 x 12 feet cloth @ lowes for about $10. This was money well spent when you have little ones who want to paint. The also had fun sculpting.
I enjoyed this class. I learned a lot, had fun, & didn’t spend a lot of time. I enrolled in another one of his classes.
Bob the cat, my buddy had a stroke last week. God decided he needed him back. I really miss him.
Get mikeshacks.com has a video on making a suitcase table. I made me one for the beach. Pretty cool! At least I think so. I didn’t install speakers yet. But the legs fold out and the table is pretty sturdy.
I’m making progress with my sail boat painting. I still have along way to go. I really like neomeglip medium, it really just helps my paint glide.
I entered a contest on craftsy. They wanted to see your crafting spot. I took the best pics I had of my painting space. I didn’t win, but I was a runner up! Mine is Bob the cat looking @ his portrait in progress. This made my day!
Added color to painting today! Water needs more work. I’ll let it dry a few days & glaze in the choppy water. Then I’ll decide the color of the boats & sail. I was thinking a yellowed cotton canvas for the sail. Boat whit trim with either wood bottom look or reddish brown. Not sure what to do. I hope I finish.
Bob my best buddy aka youngest child knows he is not supposed to go in my bedroom. I was picking up laundry & left the door open. When I went back into my room to put away more laundry this is what I saw! Yes he is hiding under the pillow, he even tucked his tail in. At 30 pounds he has a little trouble hiding.
