Art and Sunshine
I'm in heaven. Days on end with perfect weather. Sunshine and time. Unemployment suits me, except for the part where you don't get a paycheck. Otherwise, it's so nice to wake up naturally without an alarm clock and spend long mornings working in the garden. I've been cleaning out my outbuilding/studio and found some gouache so today I made two paintings. I'm rusty but like anything else, if I keep painting, I'll get better. You have to use those artistic muscles or you lose them. I'm going to do a little painting every day until July 5. Here is my first effort. It is painted with blue and the inspiration is Delft china and Charles Kraftt.
