The Perfect Day


It has been beautiful the past few days, I am totally in the autumn frame of mind and trying like crazy not to think of the fact that this weekend when we have the munchkin it will be hot as hell and she will be cranky-er than usual.
Yesterday K and I had one of those rare days that it was just the two of us, we went into downtown westerville and just wandered through the little antique shops- I ended up getting a great copy of the complete works of Tennyson from 1918....I spent part of the afternoon reading and re-reading the Lady of Shalott which has been my favorite since I was about 7 and found my moms copy of a Tennyson book...one of the many things that didn't make it when I made the big move to the mid-west....so it was a lovely moment.
We had lunch at the mexican place...which is our place, all dark and cozy with bad soap operas playing all day and night...or as I refer to them as "The News", not sure why but it's funny to me.
Painted a bit this weekend, tried not to stress....it was time to take a bit of a break, so I was not as productive as I usually am, but did create this piece "Stage Beauty" It will be listed in my shop in a little while.
I was missing being on stage a little I guess...it was 3 years ago that I last performed, playing Winslow Homer's muse in a play called "The Sharpshooter"...I don't miss the applause, just miss getting lost in the fantasy I guess.
My eye was bothing me again this weekend, and again now, which makes it hard to see and then the headaches...hard to paint, hard to type, hard to read Tennyson or comics....wish it made it harder to see my gray hairs. I was going to dye my hair this weekend but forgot...
I want to be red haired and beautiful like the Lady of Shalott....

Thanks for the compliment- I do photograph all my work, I don't even own a scanner- I just make sure I use as much natural light as I can, and a white background, I also bounce the flash if possible.
