What is that glow in the blue cloudless sky today...yes, I believe it is the sun. Finally, we have a wonderful day of sun and blue skies. Alas, I'm still not able to put my top down though. I am on yet ANOTHER antibiotic that prevents me from being in the sun. DRAT! That is not good, so lots and lots of sunscreen and covering up. At least I can get a little warmth for the aching muscles. Speaking of aching muscles, this afternoon I bowled and since I have not worked out for nearly two weeks, my quads and knees are absolutely killing me. OUCHY! Next week will be the last day of bowling till next fall and I can honestly say I'm ready to have this break. The good news is that my team is on the top but next week is the roll-off for first place of the season. My teammates can't be there at our regular time so we will pre-bowl an hour earlier. That may be good for us. We'll see.
Today I came home early to get my bowling ball and shoes and to check the mail. I was pleasantly surprised to find my new CD from my favorite group, Better Than Ezra. It is a pre-release CD that I ordered direct from them and the biggest surprise is that it is autographed. YEAH! I'm so happy. I put it immediately in my car to listen to on the way to the bowling alley. (They will be here June 2 at FlyTrap.) So there I was having a wonderful music filled drive to the bowling alley, windows down, taking in the spring air when I passed a newly mowed lawn. The scent of the freshly mowed grass was intoxicating but I only got a quick whiff as I then passed by a building that was getting a new tar roof. YUCK! The smell assaulted my nostrils. Talk about killing a moment, that did it.
On to some painting updates. I finished my fan pictures so here is the finished project.
Now this is the next picture I have started. It is the basket of potatoes. I sketched it, then we did a study in light where I used black and browns to find the light and dark in the picture and yesterday I started the color part. Sadly I will not be able to work again on it until the end of June. The classes are out until June 2 but The Hubby and I will be on vacation part of June. I will just have to practice some stuff at home and maybe I'll sketch on our trip and get some great photos for a new painting.
