coffee and watercolors…

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

 

 

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow!

Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed

sunbathing in our terrace…

 

I’ve put more layers on this canvas

now it looks like this, not complete yet.

Paint Party Friday

 

 

I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee based papers are waiting

for action.

 

I don’t like this as a painting but

I love those details of it!

‘5 minutes’

we need to sketch and finish the work in 5 minutes.

This was quicker but maybe all together 5 minutes…

Hi everyone!

Thanks for your kind and supportive words last week!

This week has been better even if I almost

ate a dental implant screw. It’s back again…oh boy.

But otherwise life is good! 🙂

pouches, teeth and oven…

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

 

 

 

First of all,

I’m sorry not visiting your blogs but last couple of weeks have been

‘difficult’.

 

My diverticulosis activated again but I started antibiotics on Tuesday.

 

My dental project has began – now I have six temporary teeth

on upper jaw…

sitting on that chair 2,5 hrs wasn’t that bad. My gums were totally numb,

so no pain.

 

Our oven said ‘bye bye’, started to smoke. Today we got new one working.

 

Isn’t all this enough for a couple of weeks? 🙄

But what to do with these?

 

I cut black yarn, wet it, straighten, dried, made a knot, put it

 

on crumpled paper…

 

Here’s the first one, edited version

after Friday…

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

 

Hi everyone!

 

Early on Friday morning I had two implant surgeries.

 

On Friday afternoon my head felt like a football after a hard game! 🙂

 

Today my cheeks are still swollen and very, very sore…

 

But soon this is only a memory.

 

Heeling has started already, I can feel it.

a gentleman

Friday, March 10th, 2017

 

This week has been a dentist week –

we made a plan for crowns etc.

Feeling a bit nervous, blue, I haven’t had inspiration

to paint nor drawing.

But I found this gentleman I made in January.
