This weeks theme for The Artist's Playroom
is masquerade and I have made it
by the skin of my teeth.
I think in my case the masquerade is that I am a housewife,
my husband says I never do any housework.
It's not that I don't want to do it,
it's just that other more important things keep cropping up,
like art and more art and a bit more art.
I really did have good intentions of doing the housework today
and then the pool was full of leaves (from my neighbours tree, grr)
and I had to clean them out,
then the nice lady, who I'm doing a pet portrait for rang
and I entered the art room to discuss the portrait and never left.
It's not really my fault.
Of course while I was in here
I decided that I would quickly do something
for APR, that quickly turned into an hour
and now I have to do this post, then it will be school pick up time.
Housework nil, art wins again!!
You'd think my husband would
hire a house cleaner,
it would make my life easier!
I had intended to make the eyes scary
but they turned out feminine
and then I was going to leave them pencil,
but they were too pale,
so I inked them
but they were too dark,
so I coloured them blue
and that's the end of that!
The school holidays are over
and let's hope
life returns to normal next week.
I can take off my mummy mask
and put on my artist mask,
(notice I didn't say housewife).
Ah, the masquerade.
Well that's me, so why don't you
hop on over to Jen's
and see what the others have done
