Today I pulled out my paints, since it is raining steadily and definitely a stay-in kind of Sunday. I found a little round camembert cheese box saved from last Christmas, that was crying out for a little folk art. I hunted around for some inspiration on YouTube and settled in for some fun!

This is a bit of journal play. I'm still craving sculpture, put on hold till we find a place to live. The edges of the journal page have been cut with fancy scissors to give a lovely tactile edge, which satisfies my need to feel the physical right now.
We are having some beautiful Spring days, a little rain, a little cloud, not too cold.... feeling in limbo and anxious to get moving...!

We are still going through the real estate process and I have no art to share. I miss it lots, although I have plenty with which to keep my mind occupied. No time to scratch really! People looking at my house, me looking at other people's houses, a possible buyer.....it's all been more gruelling than I thought it would be.... So tonight I will chill out with my journal for company and process the day away!

I found some time yesterday to sit and paint, just a small one. It helped relieve the creative itch I am feeling right now. I am loving alizarene pigment (madder rose) at the moment and making the most of it since I only have a small tube. It's on the shopping list.
I'm also itching to try some papier mache sculpture, get my hands all messy! There's some amazing creations out there and I want to make one of my own, then paint it in the brightest colours I can find..... and do some outside scenery painting down by the waterfront - a picnic with paints. If only the weather would settle!
