As last month drew to an end, it. was apparent that we needed more data. It seemed odd, because we had not downstreamed movies or done any other data-sucking activities. Our main use of the internet is to read news and browse Pinterest and keep up with Facebook and I play games with a few friends. Amazingly enough that put us close to using up our data. So, we got more data. I'm still paranoid about going over our data usage. And blogging takes up time on the computer.
My plan for blogging has been to turn on the hotspot, pull up the blog, turn off the hotspot, write out the blog, turn on the hotspot, and post my writing. What a pain! And so, I have just not done much of anything with my computer. When I do turn on the hotspot and the computer it is to browse my two favorite blogs and maybe comment on them. I hate commenting from my phone or reading blogs from my phone for that matter. It all comes down to living in the country where internet companies are few and far between and those that are here, are pitiful. Maybe Donald Trump will make everything better :) Or maybe I will just have to do better with my internet time.
Here are a few paintings I have been working on. All are oils. None are finished. In fact, taking pictures of them made me see several things that need work. I'm posting them so that you can see that I have been doing something. Also know that the light was not great. After spending about an hour looking for my camera rather than using my phone for pictures, I didn't care so much about getting the light right. This first painting is one I am doing with my ladies. It is a 9x12. This second one is a small 8x10 done to use up some of the paint left over from the ladies. I was just having fun.
The third painting is much larger - like a 24x humongous. I had painted in very dark, definite shadows, but I took them out. I had painted the trees too warm, but I cooled them a bit. They still need to be dulled down. Anyway, They all need more work.
