on new years day our kids and grands came to play games instead of our annual movie marathon. i just could not come up with movies i wanted to watch. it needed to be lighthearted, thats all i knew. in the end, i just decided on a game day.
here 'we' are playing our new game "labyrinth".
i ended up just watching the game play that day
i will read each months card reading on the first of each month for insight
i'm waiting for a shipment of some paint to be delivered to me, cause i don't have enough of the right colors to cover this whole canvas. trying to be patient, here. i had an idea about collage-ing the whole background full of this girls 'story' before painting the background, but i put a few pieces down and decided to collage only the orb she carries and just a few odd papers here and there on the background.
this is the soul, the part of you that makes you, you.
your memories and thoughts, the important parts of life
now i am thinking about how it will all play out, how i want it to be, how i can try to get the effects i would like to see, tossing things out there in my head and hoping it comes out ok in the end. it's all an experiment. the work of painting sometimes happens well before paint even enters the studio.
speaking of the studio... it is wicked cold here in massachusetts and set to be even colder this weekend, wind-chills said to get down to -35 degrees F. i've been turning on the heater down there in order to piddle around, and one night forgot to turn it off until the next evening. when i went to turn it off, it hadn't gotten above 44 degrees! i won't be painting down there anytime soon. right now i'm set up in our sitting room, and plan on just being as tidy as i can with the drips.
as soon as my paint is delivered.
