Bump in the Road

Despite the snow, class was on for the day, and I spent my time in the humbling exercise Chinese brush painting.  It could take years to do well and years to become so-so and even years to do poorly.  Do you get the feeling it's difficult?  That's not even a sixteenth of it.  But the up side of class was having Sharon agree with my assessment that the most recent watercolor is finished.  I signed "Painswick Rococo" and took it to the framer after class.  

Many errands later I was back home where I finished the quilt I thought would be finished a few days ago.  That should have left me open to begin the first of the "Canyon Suite", but D asked me when I would start on a project he asked me to do quite a few months ago.  He was right.  I had forgotten.  And since I had promised to do it, I took out my acrylic paints and started to work on another representation of our home.  I had painted one years and years ago, and it hung in our kitchen ever since then.  D wanted me to do a new one with the new outline of the house as it is now to add to the empty spot in the kitchen.  "Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to work I went . . . ."

Maybe tomorrow for the next quilt.  Today the idea for the second quilt occurred to me so now all three are there in my head complete with their names.  I do know that important things will intrude, and I will be sidetracked from time to time, but I have a plan.  Keep all three in sight (i.e., in my minds eye), and they'll have to be made real.

  1. somehow they will get made and, who knows, the delay may be for the purpose of a redesign that you'll love? Anyhow, I'll be happy to see the works in progress!!
