I'm still plugging away at my painting. I almost broke one of my goals last night. I vowed not to pull any all-nighters this year. Last night when the munchkins were snug as a bug in a rug I was so tempted to stay up until I was done. But the thing is I would have so payed for that today. A 5 year old and 2 year old aren't quite so understanding about being in a painting groove. And since neither of them ever nap, that mean no nap for Mommy. So I was a good little artist and packed away the brushes at 2 a.m. giving me just enough shut eye to function today:)
On another note I found the perfect place to photograph my work at night. My laundry room. It has fluorescent lights and it provides enough light for my camera to at least pick up a fairly good representation. A friend says she puts a pink light bulb and a blue light bulb in her fluorescent lights to simulate day light. Anyone know if this works? Also the washer and dryer are the perfect height to prop my board up so that I get a great angle. Of course I would figure this out when I only have 6 more months before we move. Fingers crossed I have a designated art area in my next house, at least a place to store my ever accumulating art stuff!
Hope you're having a great week. See you on Friday for the Feature:))
