A Little Paint and The Perfect Tee
A Little Paint
. . . well, a lot of paint. Today I poured some paint on the now-infamous perennial work in progress. I am determined for it to be something completely different from what it was before. Is that allowed? I should be letting it be what it wants to be. Today a little of that energy happened finally. I think. I had made the black and white pours, then dried those a little. On top of that I poured a puddle of some rich and delicious Quinacridone Burnt Orange that had been mixed with some polymer medium. I wanted to flatten out the puddle by pressing it down with a piece of heavy paper. But my results were less than thrilling when I pulled up the paper. But the effect that happened on the paper was wonderful, so I let that dry and then collaged the painted portion face up right into the wet paint. This is the result of my experimentation, and I think I can bring it to a happy resolution after everything dries. I’ll want to tidy up the edges of the paper to make sure they’re adhered well, and then I’ll probably re-work the negative areas. After all that, I’ll apply a heavy coat of self-leveling clear gel.

The squirrels yanked out two of my young cauliflower plants this morning before I could get out there. They are moving from one bed to another just creating general destruction. I brought the plants in, washed them well, shredded the leaves, and put them in a big pot of vegetable soup this afternoon. In addition, this is what my cabbage looks like.
The soup was delicious. Baby cauliflower leaves sound like a gourmet treat.
I guess the squirrels thought so too.
