I am closing in on my blogiversary and I am keeping up with the painting. I have used up all of my itty bitty canvases. I did not go shopping, so I did a few larger paintings, too. For my first painting of the week, I found some maple “helicopters” in my front yard and brought them to my painting space on the dining room table. I put them on a green cloth and painted them on a tiny canvas. The next one was a lemon I got at the flea market on Saturday. I guess that means Friday was the day I didn’t paint. It’s okay; I doubled up another day. I also picked up two peppers when I was at the flea market and I painted those on Sunday.
The next day, I used a bigger canvas and painted a succulent in a small clay pot. We have a lot of succulents around here; they reproduce like rabbits.
The following day, my daughter needed me to take her to Target, so I browsed the produce department there, looking for something that would be fun to paint. I swear the Bosc pears looked pretty when I picked them up at Target. They don’t look pretty on this canvas.
I was so frustrated with the way they turned out that I took my last tiny canvas and I painted one of them again. I think I do like the little painting a bit better than the big one.
Today, my daughter needed to go to Publix. That produce department had plenty of nice vegetables in it, but I was uninspired until my daughter suggested a purple cabbage. Purple. I hadn’t done a purple vegetable in ages. I decided to give it a try. Okay, it’s just a painting of a big, fat purple cabbage, but I like it.
The cabbage is painting number forty-seven. I just need three more to meet my goal. Today is Wednesday and my blogiversary is Sunday. I think I can do this.
