Then, in the afternoons, I spent my time going to 3 LAX games and on Wednesday, to church for Family Night and Girls Clubs.
Friday, I spent the entire day cleaning and organizing my office and my studio. Boy, did I feel a sense of accomplishment after that feat!
Here's a pic of what my dining room now looks like:
If you'd seen how full of my artsy stuff this table was last week, you'd realize why looking at it now, all shiny and clear of anything, is such a big deal.
Everything is now nicely stored in my basement studio, ready for my next thrilling project, which will probably be a continuation of Christy Tomlinson's class on Creative Color. I'm ready for some more canvas painting!
Oh, I am also dabbling in my Art Journal. Thursday night, after the loss of Newark High to William Penn, I was not particularly inspired! Strange, right? When am I ever NOT inspired. Anyway, I just wanted to play with paints so this is what I did:
Nothing too thrilling here. No She Art girls. But I did use 3 of my new cheapo "My Studio" acrylic paints. And the blue one is my new Claudine Hellmuth NOT cheap acrylic paint. I love the consistency of her paints. For my mixed media, Christy says we can use the cheap stuff to create the background layers, so that's why I invested 50 cents per bottle on 6 cheapo ones. And the Claudine paints were a steal on Blitzy--I just had to get the small 4 oz. bottle of all 15 colors. Did you know that with the right combination of colors, I you can get 51 colors out of the 15 paints??? That is so cool.
I'm headed down to my clean and organized studio to make some fun art. I will share a great "find" I found in Dover today, during a later post. I just don't have the patience to write more right now.
