I went to Michael’s yesterday and bought some brown yarn. Now I have to decide if I want to use it with Jacquie or if I want to stick with the reddish bronze I found in my stash on Tuesday. That would be more colorful, but some of the brown I bought has extra colors. I also have some beads I want to add to her hair as well. The hair on Jacquie is going to be another experiment.
I got one cheek of blush done last night. I kind of got off the lines for the spiral and now I have to figure out how to get off the lines on the other cheek. I had wanted to go with a pinky coral bead, but I couldn’t find the right ones so I went with a red cheek. Jacquie has brown toffee skin so the red really looks good.
I also started on the beach umbrellas for my Life Is A Beach painting. I also came up with another idea for a painting in the same Beach vein. I won’t tell the idea yet…I will work on it. Actually I had two ideas. The second one might be more what they are looking for at the art show. I will work on all three of them and hopefully finish and enter all of them into the show. I think that this weekend is going to be a very busy one. I will be working on all three paintings…maybe all at once. Ha, Ha! I have to keep those creative ideas flowing.
As for my everyday job…my big project is still going on. I have decided that it will be something I work on after lunch each day. At least my boss doesn’t expect the work to be done in a hurry. I have almost a year to finish it. Hey…it is government work. : )
I am off to lunch now. I will post what happens with Jacquie’s other blush spiral red cheek hopefully tomorrow.
