Days 18-20

Day 18:
No school!  While my husband was still sleeping, I spent a couple hour painting this swallowtail caterpillar.  It's on 16x20 inch canvas.  I still need to varnish it but I know it will take a long time to dry spraying it outside in this weather.  I need to look at it again to make sure I'm finished.  I remembered being happier with it than I am just looking at the photo.

Day 19:
I almost missed a day!  Jared was off work since we got new carpet put in earlier in the day so I got to hang out with him last night and wasn't really thinking about my photo until bed time.  This is a picture of the random art supplies/tools that I leave laying around the house and end up putting in this ceramic cup thing.  When I took ceramics at ESU, our first project on the wheel was to throw a dozen cylinders.  Mine weren't very good.  Works as a pencil cup though!

Day 20:
Stopped at an antique shop on my way home and bought this chalkware lettuce head lady.  I have mostly fruit decorations and just a few vegetables but I thought this was really funny.  Just need to touch up the nicks with a little paint and she'll be good as new!

P.S. Can you tell I'm getting tired of inside pictures?  I haven't complained about the weather so far, trying to patiently wait for spring but then I get seed catalogs in the mail and I'm ready to start my flower garden!

  1. lettuce lady cracks me up! i didn't even realize that was lettuce at first. i was thinking it was general organic/kind of like a sunburst shape.
