Getting in the Mood. I'm So Ready!
Fall is in the air and I can smell it. The shorter days are here and the
weather is beginning to change. It won't be too much longer and it will be
sweater weather and then sweatshirt weather. We all know what comes after
I haven't painted a lot this summer as it's been so hot. I like to paint
with the windows opened. It's refreshing and the air is not stale like it is
with air conditioning. We can hear the birds chirping and singing, cars
going by and dogs barking. Even the children talking or riding their skate
boards as they go by.
I've already got some ideas on what to paint and have been practicing
drawing in anticipation for the big day when I can sit at my art table and
begin creating. I'm hyped. What will you be painting/creating?
So many artists will be painting Fall and Christmas projects. The
ridiculously hot summer has us looking, with great excitement, to cooler
weather and the possibility of lots of fun things to paint.
The kids are back in school, the weather will be delightful and apple cider
and doughnuts are a given. The smells of chili, chicken and dumplings and
lots of baked goods permeating throughout the house. It all just puts me in
the mood to paint. Visions of big fat pumpkins keep floating by.
There's lots of terrific books to look at and projects to bring to life. The
problem is deciding which projects to do first. I know I'm going to do a
couple of pots and saucers projects (from Linda Lover's Decorative Painting
For Clay Pots and Saucers). Very nice projects Linda! So many fantastic
artists to choose from. Have a blast searching and choosing.
Enjoy the Fall and the wonderful things that it brings. I know I will.
All is well in my world.
