Toby's been off on a business trip for the last several days. You know, I just don't sleep well with him not pressed up against my backside. Then someone has to do his chores, and I hate feeding the chickens. I'm off my feed a bit. Today (Wed) I plan on wearing myself plum out so that maybe I will sleep tonight. I'll start with some house work, then painting with the Ladies, later will be sign class, and then church. Speaking of painting, I have been working on a few small paintings. Since I got so many nice birthday presents, I need some thank you cards, and I'm behind on my small paintings/cards.
This first portrait is not small. I did it yesterday with the Ladies - wanting to do a portrait and trying to get the color right. They all oohed and aahed over it, but not Jesse. She said, "The eyes are wrong." Thank you, Jes, for your honesty and bluntness. I will fix the eyes.
Can you tell that I got a lighthouse book for my birthday? I guess I will paint some lighthouses. This one may be leaning a bit - maybe it was the camera.
