Happy Square Root Day!

I know - it's been a little while. I've tried to catch up since the OWOH giveaway. Full time work , home and health needed a little attention. The thyroid medication was upped and a few extra tweeks of loose screws, I'm beginning to feel almost human!

I painted last night and completed, start to finish, a new painting. It's a still life - a water glass of flowers in an impressionistic style. I'm pleased with it and it wasn't too taxing. I'm usually more pleased with a painting and the creative flow when I am able to relax. I haven't really done any impressionistic painting before last night, or at least not that I could readily identify. I was a little out of my comfort level but I was in the mood. I'll post a pic as soon as I take one. I'm testing it on the wall. The back-ground was a mix of ultramarine blue, red or some variety and raw umber. It turns into almost a chocolate brown, and I have an accent wall of milk chocolate on one of my classroom walls. Looks pretty good if I do say so myself!

In the meantime, I found another art doll give-away. The link to it is on the right. Kindred Sisters Gathering Post is the sponsor! ... but just go look, don't comment. lol - maybe I'll have a better chance of winning! lol
