A Brown Paper Bag and 15 Minutes
I have been stuck, a lot to do so I read my book and do minor fussy things like run the vac, cook, weed in short spurts. I also did some planting of broccoli and tended the vegetable garden. Spinach, lettuce, radishes, kohlrabi, plus 7 of the 30 hills of potatoes I planted are up. Self seeded dill is running the show so I have to get rid of some of that. Dill is wonderful in garden bouquets, I don't enjoy making pickles.
I always have some sheets of cut up paper brown paper bags, sho I remember a lesson a while back on 15 minute paintings. You see All Norah's Art on the side to the right, she talked about this some time ago and I remember it was quite fun. You take the foam off a foam brush and use the plastic tab that is left. For some satisfaction in the day I did this face and background. Her dress is paper trim used as a stencil.
I also altered the painting with a photo and layered the painting to slep into the bacground of the photo. More satisfaction. I only have a few hours to feel satisfied as tomorrow will be here soon and then I will need to think again of what to do so I can do the things that shout, do me do me.
