Despite the fierce storm and gale force winds at Marcelina's, on the night of the big storm we kept that kiln all hot and bothered with stick after stick of glorious burnable wood!

i forgot that i remembered that if i just select the inside part of the top one with the selector and then fill it, then there's white space around the fill. Then I remembered the other way to do it is fill in layers behind the black outline. Sometimes I get so full of beans that I forget this way!! but then i remember.

My new basement studioI took the photos of the finished ones on an angle to avoid the glare because they are still pretty wet. I can't wait to finish the rest in my basement studio. I just have to order a few things before I can get going, let me know if you want anything from Curry's as I'll likely have a big enough order to get free shipping.

JUST WAIT, I have been taking a cold wax and oil course with the famous Wendy Bachiu for the past two days. I have 10 works in progress and will even have before and after photos.... p.s I love cold wax and oil, I also love my famous teacher! I pick up the paintings tomorrow. YAY!

today i found some negatives and some were of when kate and I discovered the most amazing patch of greenery at craigleith - so dreamy. here are some strangely hilarious old photos to jog your memory, or enlighten you for the first time of the wonder of a earthy segment of small leaves... a leafy patch deserving of a reminiscent blog post.
i don't think i have ever seen an expression of this level of seriousness on kate's face before or since. this was one soft patch of foliage to solicit such a staredown!
there, that is more like it.
here is a photo of me enjoying the patch - the picture heavily features my neck and chin.
