I am so glad that Fall is finally here weather-wise! Here I sit, in my LONG SLEEVES and SOCKS. Two days ago it was still tank tops and bare feet. But I digress — here’s a new kitty (she was fun to paint):
I am thinking about picking up the acrylics and oils again. I love my watercolors, but there are certain effects that I just cannot achieve with them (at least not without a fight!)… and perhaps it would stir up the creative juices more. I wonder how acceptable it is to have different mediums in one’s portfolio?
I’ve been looking around at art on Etsy and there are just so many wonderful, whimsical things there. I often feel I’m too “straight-laced” with my work, not enough movement and playfulness. Hm.
The last crop of tomatoes has fallen to a sad plight — some kind of tiny bug has invaded and everything is covered with little black dots/weblike things. Sad, sad! I’ll have to figure out what that is so we can avoid it next year. I am glad at least we got two good rounds of tomatoes before this.
Off I go to dig out the acrylics from under my bed… 🙂
