I thought I had missed a couple of weeks
with my blog and wow it's been over
a month since I last annoyed you all.
Can't have that now can we.
(Warning, lots of catching up to do so WOYWWer's
are welcome to look at desk and run..while you can)
Actually it's me who's been annoyed.
Annoyed by the mess gremlins.
These are the tidier shots, you should see what's on
the floor in the corner.
Now I know what you're thinking... she's just made the mess
all by herself. Well I protest.... okay, so maybe some
of it is me but most is those pesky
Just look at the ground sheet all wavied up and
trippy overy squishy crumpled.
There's no way I could have done all that.
I just walk carefully (cough, cough) around from table
to table. Those gremlins come in at night when I'm not
around and play twister - I'm sure of it.
And they go into my other room
and throw paper around onto the floor.
Those pesky beasts even got into my washing machine
the other day and it wouldn't stop filling.
Of course that happened while I was taking Little Miss
to school, so the floors and anything within a fifty mile radius
had a really thorough clean.
Not content to mess up my washing machine they then
attacked my kettle, which has started leaking water
all over the base plate.
I tell you, they are trying to get me.
I'll either drown while doing the washing,
get electrocuted while making a cuppa or
trip over and clunk my head while walking in my art room.
If anyone knows how to make those devils leave
I'd like to hear from you.
I've finished a few paintings since I last posted,
there was the commission piece
(which is the reason for my absence from the blogosphere)
|The dull green is actually a lovely turquoise in real life, just can't get the camera to see it.|
Then I finished my bird painting
and I'm a bit further with my other bird painting
Lots of squidly didlyness there but still a long way to go.
You can see my hanging bird in the second picture up the top.
He's looking really scary cos his face is in it's underwear.
I've just started mapping it out and he's rather naked
and scary looking.
Speaking of scary, I'm currently doing the
most scary thing ever.
A portrait of my girls ( cue Phycho shower scene violin music).
Now don't panic, I'm not going to plaster them all over the
screen and turn you off in droves, you know the Oh no,
not another mother putting up the kids photos, sort of thing.
I'm a bit funny about them being up for the world to
look at so I don't put any photos of them up or paintings.
Not that I'm blowing my own horn and saying that
it is a great likeness or anything...mainly cos it isn't
and boy is it hard to draw them.
I've waffled on a bit already so I'll tell you all about
the pain that is my portrait painting next week.
Of course that's assuming I haven't lost my temper
and put my foot through it.
Now you've heard my long winded tale,
why not hop over to
and see what the others have been up to
on their desks.
I need a cuppa....just hope I don't get a free perm doing it!
