Hi Gerri, I have not dropped by to say hello in some time and wanted to correct that. I hope you are doing well, and getting along well. Regardless I wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and hope things are going very well.
Yes, I would do the same, as in painting over it if someone said that or similar unless I really liked it. Once a painting is done in my mind, I can’t change or add to it. Not to worry, I say it as I see it.
I carried one with me too. So does my Daughter sometimes(and a camera). My hobbies seem to come in phases. Once I have taken it all completely in, I drop it usually for something else after a while. As far as my drawings, I was detailed and that took time. Now it seems I do not have the patience and I can’t concentrate as well. Plus the RA pain in my hands doesn’t help any. Even my writing has become worse. Plus it felt natural and easy back then and it was fun doing it for my Kids.
I was thinking of doing a couple of collages. Painting does interest me. Phil bought me some paints, brushes and small canvasses a while back to start and see if I still enjoy it.
I'm considering woodworking projects too. We have the equipment in the basement but I don’t like the wood dust all over and possibly breathing it in. Maybe out on the deck this summer.
Thank you Gerri. That makes me feel better with the motivation and a solid plan. You're good! :)
I’m glad that my Friend decided to feed Sierra, the lower carb food too. Her fur is even thicker and shinier. Hug happily accepted.
Ha! I’m sure that your furbugs are spoiled since I know how much you love animals and you devote your time to them. Wonderful!
Do you have any photos of your paintings? I’d love to see them. Painting is a wonderful therapy for sure. I tried painting but I’m not that good at it. I’d have to call them “abstract” to be kind. :D My oldest Brother was a good painter.
I was good at sketching during high school and when our Kids were growing up. I’d sketch/draw big shaded pictures for their birthdays, Hallowe’en, Christmas, etc. and put them in the bay window. I received many nice compliments.
Yes, I‘ll let you know when I find a new hobby. I’ve had many through the years that were enjoyable. As for now, I bought a stepping stone(not painted) of a bunny. So I’ll paint it the colour of our bunny and glaze it, then set it against the tree beside where her burial spot is in the backyard. I‘m sure she’ll like that.
We are in the southeastern side of Ontario, our Province. It was warmer and sunny on Monday and Tuesday here, halfway through Wednesday, it was cool and started raining. Done now. Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer and sunny again. Hope so! Now for the regional sports….:)
Thanks for your kind comment. My Friend next door asked if we were getting another bunny. I said maybe but we're still mourning her being gone. Her doggie has Diabetes and I suggested a somewhat lower carb diet for her last fall since dog food is yuk and carbful usually. She did and her doggie is feeling better, taking less Insulin and is a bit more energetic with what her arthritis allows, of course.
How are your furry friends doing? As mentioned we sure can be thankful that they are such good therapy pals for us.
Have you been doing any new projects? I've been trying to decide what I can do as an enjoyable hobby or such. I'm sure you have more exciting things going on in your Life but it is nice to settle down and relax sometimes with a nice hobby or a good book, as you know. Hopefully you are having beautiful weather in your part of the US.
Hi again!! I didn't want to say it on your thread but our Bunny passed away on the first day of spring. We are still sad about it but we have videos of her to watch, so it sort of feels like she is still with us. She was a character! :) She was part bunny, part cat, part dog, part human. The Vet was shocked that she was almost 11 years old. He said dwarf rabbits normally live to age 6 max. Well, I guess no one can tell anyone else when they are going to die really. Just like Diabetics. :)
I hope that you and Hubby and your furry Friends are doing okay.
