I don't really have anything super exciting to talk about today. Since, finally, Doug was home on the weekend, I had him do all of the soccer games, errands and whatever else on Saturday, while I stayed home and worked in my studio. I did four large sized underpaintings, which WAS pretty exciting. Clearly, it's been awhile since I have worked much larger than 24x24. And while these are images that I have painted before, changing the scale is a welcome challenge. I would have liked to have done a few more as I was totally in the groove, but I don't have anywhere to put them right now. So I must save the groove for next time.
The rest of Saturday was filled with preparation for a belated birthday sleepover for my son. My nerves were a bit jangled what with seven, squeaky voiced, loud and boisterous twelve year olds in the house, but I retired early to watch tv and knit in our bedroom and Doug stayed up and supervised the boys downstairs. We are a good tag team-I got up at 7am to make waffles while he slept in.
I puttered around on Sunday, painted a few cradled edges, made some jalapeno cheese, and organized my sorely neglected desk.
See? Not so exciting. Although having a clean desk again might qualify as excitement for me these days. Heh.
