My true love brought home to me: Three Ligonberry jars of jam, One jar of Raspberry jam and one jar of Gravlaxsas!! Can't exactly put this to music! ha Pablo was near an Ikea and ran in for these favorites of mine. The Gravlaxsas is a mustard sauce used on salmon and is wonderful.... the jams are wonderful too. Behind these jars of jam is "3" a 16"x16" canvas using again my old collagraph prints, molding paste and acrylic. I have been sanding, repainting, sanding. It's on purpose that it is in the background of this photo as I am about ready to place it on the unfinished work pile. All that sanding left me with a rather dull image. I'll leave it alone and come back to it with fresh eyes! It happens ever so often and this one just missed the mark.
I have plans to continue painting with acrylic in the studio but I have also decided to arrange an easel on the deck and paint with oils in the cool mornings this Spring and Summer. My pulmonary problems won't allow oils in the house so this is perfect timing to return to my first love...oils!
Tonight a quick dinner and a movie "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus". It didn't get great reviews but I loved Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" and I'll see anything with a devil played by Tom Waite?!!
