We are having a snowy day here in Alberta. In April. With COVID 19 keeping us away from people, you would think that being indoors more would be a good thing. But I am very ready to see green grass and wear flip flops and do outside work!
I do have a few (more) projects to work on over the next while. We received a chair from my in-laws awhile ago. It looks to me like the original finish has been stripped. And maybe the seat replaced? Anyway, I think that I will use it as a little table in the house. I am trying to decide if I will just use hemp oil on it or paint it. I’m leaning toward the oil.
We also received a couple of candlesticks that Les made when he was a teenager. I love the wood on these and the rich finish. They will stay just like they are.
From our local charity auction site I picked up a couple of frames. Now that I am learning to paint I want frames that I can pop little paintings into from time to time. These fit the bill perfectly. They are really well made and the size isn’t intimidating for a painting. I think I will probably use a white paint.
Inside the one frame was a little painting. I didn’t know that when I bid on the frame. It makes me wonder who the person was who painted it. It is sweet and I will keep it for now.
I’m happy with my progress with watercolours. I am also going to add oil paints to the list. I follow a blog called Miss Mustard Seed. She did a free online course last week. I received my paints in the mail this week, so will be giving the lesson a try in the next day or two. I am really excited to learn this medium as well!
