I Scored This Weekend!

I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday and that it isn't too hot where you are. I know many of you are dealing with extreme heat and humidity. Try to stay cool.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I was going through stacks of my art and discovered so many things in that partial completion stage. Imagine that! Me not finishing a project! Who would have guessed!!

I got myself in gear and gessoed more of the paint brochures, then I finished a small face that was almost done but needed something. I'm still not 100% happy with her but she's better than when I found her....

I tried to fix her eyes
but nothing worked.

So she's as finished as I can make her.

Here are my latest index cards....

Yesterday HB went out in the late morning. When he came back he told me there was a yard sale across the street that I might be interested in. I looked out the window and spotted an easel! I immediately went over and was thrilled when I saw it up close. It's really sturdy, has all the pieces, including extra table space and storage bins....and the best part was the price! The sign said $25!! I bought it on the spot and brought it home.  HB helped me set it up on the back patio and then I moved it out into the shade to get a picture of it.

Isn't it great???

I had to put a canvas on it just to see how it looks. I may have to move things around a lot to use it in the studio but it was too good to pass up.
