Friday with Flurries.......
Revival going on in the oxalis pot is great to see. It likes the the longer days of light and the care I can give it while it is inside. It will go back out on the patio where it can live free. I will probably sprinkle some new soil on it to help it grow.
I bought a new cheaply-priced set of alkyd paints. I thought it would help get me started painting again. I unpack two boxes of iron ore rocks from Lake Superior and I started working. The alkyds were a bad thing as I noticed they were not working on the rocks. I took one over to the kitchen sink and found the work that I had done easily just washed down the sink. I bought another box of acrylics yesterday afternoon to add to an older set and will start again. Ally’s are best to be used on paper along with watercolor to get opaque spots on a painting. White watercolor doesn’t work on a painting but alkyd will. Who knows if I can do this again as I haven’t painted on rocks for many years. I hope this will cause a rally in my life to start painting real painting again. It isn’t just like getting back on a bicycle but once I start things could get going.
Our morning sky is not a great looking one. I know that it will flurry, off and on all day. It will be good to be getting closer to spring. Thanks for checking in on my post today. Everyone take care.
