I was missing last week
I had a date with a few boxes of tissues.
It was one almighty snot fest,
you know the kind,
where the only way to sit upright is if you
stuff a tissue up each nostril and
just let them soak up the snot.
If you sit up without the tissues, the snot just comes
streaming out and floods everything in it's path,
even computer keyboards are in the firing line.
Plus once the snot hits the cotton wool
inside my head it gets really heavy and I can't
hold it up, hence, staying away from the computer
and just laying on the couch for quite a few days.
Today is the first day back into my art room since my last post
and of course nothing has changed desk wise
but I did go to class this week and did quite a bit.
Remember this fellow, well I decided I didn't like it now
so we decided to take off a lot of the dark ink on the colourful water.
He's looking better now but my teacher had
that evil glint in her eye.
That look of I'm gonna scare the pants off you now and
she made me mix up two pots of ink, one with turquoise and
sepia and one with purple and sepia.
Now those of you who know me well, know that I hate the colour brown
and the thought of putting that poopy colour on
made me go green.
I put in just one or two drops of sepia
and then miss meanie
smiled and poured that stuff in like crazy.
I think they heard my protests in the next county!!
Trust me she said, with that evil grin and so it began, a dribble of this and a dribble
of that and ....
okay I told you that it needed the sepia in there
to bring out the colours (cough, cough).
It still needs to dry and the colours will still move,
plus there is a lot of work to do on the pelican itself
but I have to admit that I really like it now.
Just wish we could get this result without
giving me a heart attack every time.
Just to prove it wasn't a fluke
I also inked the boat with the leftover inks
This was really fresh when I took the photo
so it will move more but I like it.
I'm going to paint the boat properly, I think,
may change my mind yet.
Now don't get me wrong, my teacher is fabulous
at teaching us and I love her to bits
but when she gets that evil glint in her eye,
my heart starts to race
and that feeling of dread comes over me,
cos I know she is going to make me put
poo cack all over my canvas!
Should have gone to class last week
and let the snot run free!!
Well that's my almost kinda desk
for this week
so why not hop on over to
and see the other desks around the world
this, now snot free, Wednesday.
