Good morning what's on your workspace today? After a week of removing rubber stamps from woodblocks my hands are sore and fingers stiff and there still remains 5 to be cleaned of glue! Enough! for a week or two. Yesterday I planned working in my journals. Immediately spilled pink paint on the journal. Too, too much so spread it around and then had to leave to dry.
below is my computer work space where I paint when doing on line classes.
Below, is were the "pinked" journals are drying I added a few other acrylics, orange and yellow. Pink is a color I never choose to use, since my Dylusions Bubble Gum Pink dried up. Reviewing my stash of cheap paints revealed a lot of pinks, unused. So why do I have so many pinks? The time has come to use them up.
This is the south side where my sewing stuff used to reside. Now donated to a group o women who meet to sew I have attempted to turn this into an area for new stuff awaiting a permanent home. Thus, it has become a dump…
Thank you everyone for your kindness and understanding when I wrote last week of my trials and tribulations with Menieres. Life is a lot calmer now the symptoms have abated. Not quite gone, I feel them lurking like I felt as a kid that goblins and bears lurked on the stairs, round that bend at the top.
Now trying to catch up with journals and life in general.
My work space that I cleaned up 2 days ago and decided it looked sad, yesterday made backgrounds and today, two for my Wanderlust journal. Workspace is looking happier.
The large journal to the rear is my Wanderlust schedule. Painted the kraft cover as I hate that color. It always blows my lid off when visiting sites and people make wonderful things with kraft paper. Please note cheap paints. I have some Dick Blick artists acrylics but they are so stiff and if I mix acrylic glazing mix with them they take hours to dry. I need to explore some of the more fluid acrylics.
Below is my desk area. I do some journaling …
Trying to get this week going. Problems all round. Last week I was in San Antonio getting new hearing aids. The cost is enough to give you a stroke and learning all the accessories and the way to use them requires reading , downloading and trying to remember up down , left right , hold 2 secs etc.. It is a Phonak Audeo B90 -312 that has all kind of built in microphones and noise control but to hear properly requires accessories. I have a ComPilot 2 9 has around 10 functions and a Roger (acronym for something) and this cuts out noise in conversations where there are several people as in a restaurant or meeting also directs TV sound to hearing aids. It does work though too much noise can drown it out. It can also work with a TV . There is a learning curve and it is frustrating. There has not been much time for art or computers etc. Today we are off out to lunch at the noisiest restaurant we know (Chili's) to try it.
