|i only slept a few hours and made myself get up. no more of this crazy hours bull. so, i worked on paintings/collages all day long, ran out to the art supply to get some stuff and then to joann's to get some more stuff, and by the time we got home it was after 8p. and i realized i hadn't eaten anything but a organic fake poptart (labeled strawberry, actually apple...i think) and coffee today. and that was it. so i felt super tired and craaaaaaazy. i want to continue to work on the paintings, etc, but i know i need to leave it until to-morrow. so photos to-morrow most likely. i have 3 small canvasses, a 4x4 cork tile collaged, 3 match boxes, 2 collaged cards, but amazing cards. i swear it. and i think that is it.|
so i went to the art supply and got some amazing papers, in addition to a piece of paper that looks like lucky charms. seriously. i also got two brown pens. yay for brown pens! and then at jojo's i got 2 paint by number kits that each had 4 small canvasses in them...20 bucks for 8 of em! whoa! i was actually looking for copper leaf, but they didn't carry it anymore. so. there was that. mod podge, i love you so. and your bottle is pretty, too. let me write an an ode to it:
oh, mod podge
you are so gloppy
when you dry on my finger
you are fun to peel off
i like the glossy one. back in the old days, i liked matte. now, i like glossy. semi-gloss, at least. sometimes it bothers me when i see a painting that is flat. how about a little damar even? ya know? ok, some of you don't know. it is a kind of varnish that is not super shiny, but is really nice. and smells nice.
i was so busy today that after winding some skeins off that i had spun yesterday, i touched no other fiber, including the fiber that came from frenecreek, a rescue farm. it is sitting in its box downstairs. and i meant to take photos...and had no time. in fact, i brushed teeth, washed my face, put on overalls and painted and didn't shower until 9p. although, i did shower at like 4 a, for the 3rd time that day. but still. i. want. to. paint. but i am so very tired.
ok, so old photos, and that is that.
oh, also, i got some fusible backing for the embroidery. oh! and we were at the store and i found a whole bunch of old fashioned aunt anne's(?) embroidery pattern for 85 cents each. and they are soooo cute! iron on ones. pics to-morrow. i swear. ok, i am so out of it, i am gonna go.
