Violet is building things. Then the little person on the right knocks them down. Violet gets so frantic when Piper gets near her things. I feel bad for both of them. Piper wants to play with Violet soooo much, and Violet hates it when the baby messes up her stuff. Violet has started building "baby traps". They're designed to keep Piper out of her play area. They usually consist of a blanket strung across a chair and a rocking horse. They sort of work. More studio progress. Adam is finished putting on every last little bit of drywall and all the wood on the windowsills.
Stairs-yay! Loft-yay! Having to move and/or cover every single thing in this studio-not yay. The guy coming out to texture the walls next month said it gets really messy because they spray it on. So...I'll be busy.
Do any of you follow Duane Keiser's work? He's the originator of the painting-a-day movement. I really admire his work. He inspired me to pursue the p-a-d project for about a year. Here's my old art blog if you're interested. Some days went well, others didn't. It did help me improve my skills and learn to work more quickly. I sure miss painting. The studio should be (ahem, Adam???) done by the end of this year. Right, honey? RIGHT?????
I thought today's painting from Keiser is fun. It's amazing how much he conveys with a few simple brushstrokes. He's a real master with still lifes, but they have so much energy. Those few strokes of orange really wake up those peas, yes?
Seeing as how I am a huge supporter of the color orange, let's look at some orange things, shall we?
