Good Day

I’m thinking about heading off to the store to get material to make curtains for the living room. We have blinds up right now but when it’s really bright they let a lot of light through. Also, when we have really long days in a few months, I have a feeling that we’re going to want something darker. I should also stop at the post office at some point to see if there’s any mail. Of course, I’m not so sure I actually feel like going out today. I really am a homebody!

I took the time to do two paintings today. One painting is another version of a forest scene I’d done a little while back because I’m going to give one of them to my Baha’i friends for their upcoming holiday. I actually like the newer painting a bit better and I know that they love the original one so I think that should work quite well for me! Not sure yet though but I’ve got until the end of the week to decide anyway. The other painting I did is a watercolour of a butterfly. It turned out quite well too. I wasn’t trying to get a perfect photo quality butterfly but rather more the butterfly essence in the general shape of a butterfly. I’m happy with what I got from it. I think I’m going to do the same thing with a dragonfly. .

So today is a creative day for me. I plan on doing a bit more reading today and maybe do a bit of cleaning but for the most part I’m trying to take advantage of some quality alone time. I’d also like to try a few paintings where I use only one colour in varying shades of light to dark. I need to find something I’d like to paint first though.
