(Work in Progress)
I tried another abstract background on this large canvas and I loved that it looked like a storm in the background. I 'might' use this as a donation item in a local charity auction but I'm not sure yet. Not quite sure if folks around here appreciate abstract anything. We had record tornadoes here this summer and for some reason I see a funnel cloud and lightening in the background. I put daisies (again) on this one and have just started doing some shading on them as you can see on the two flowers on the very right side.
Here is a close-up after some shading. I'll post more pics when it is complete. Unless of course I do something to ruin it and start over. That is known to happen in my world ;)
I've been up to my *** in beets! A good friend's father LOVES to grow vegetables and then they have such a surplus. They brought me TWO plastic grocery bags FULL of beets and I've been canning pickles and freezing them for 2 nights! 13 pints of pickles and 17 pints frozen. It's a good thing I like my veggies! Next to deal with is a head of cabbage the size of a basketball!
After two nights of beet juice EVERYWHERE in my kitchen, I finally got things cleaned up, grabbed a glass of wine and headed for the tub to soak. I pinched a nerve in my lower back and it was killing me. Got in my jammies and curled up in a chair and drew this young girl. It was SO fun to sketch a girl again, I haven't done that in awhile.
Maybe this weekend, with 3 days off, I'll find time to add some paint to her? We shall see!
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend! Enjoy and for those traveling, stay safe!
