We just had some nasty weather in Northern California. Our house lost electricity for 3 1/2 days. Luckily, we live in the mountains, where this happens fairly regularly, so we have a generator. We started it up and kept ourselves warm and the fridge cool. And we did a lot of nesting on the couch, talking, so it was kind of nice, really.
During that time, I migrated a painting setup to near the patio doors, where the most light is. I continued playing with painting on gesso-painted cardboard and colorful backgrounds. Here are two pieces I did on one piece of cardboard:
I kind of like how the peas came out, but the photo doesn't do them justice. I might have to shoot it again. Or maybe do another painting of a plate with fork and peas.
Funny, where this painting thing takes you...
