Today was spent preparing for a lecture and demonstration that I will be giving this weekend at the local library. I have large canvas to paint, samples to sew and kits to assemble. As I have mentioned before, I have to paint outside because of my messy habits and knack for spilling paint on carpet- so my day was spent outside surrounded by green grass, wind through the trees and the sound of the ocean. Peaceful- YES- but I think it was after I spilled paint on my parent's deck (shhhh..I got it out before anyone saw!) and when my canvas blew away in the wind, that for a brief moment I really started missing my studio space!

Oh I love your canvas made me giggle thinking of you outside though painting - I want a studio where i can throw it around - I had to be very refrained when doing your awesome Graffiti Chic course when we got to the paint splatters LOL - my Mum saw some of my art work and loved the 'splatter' effect that she tried that part herself on a project she was working on - she got black paint all over her white kitchen, when I saw it the day after (after she'd tidied up) it was still present on the floor, the cooker hood and the side of the microwave - made us all giggle! Outside sounds like a good solution - problem in Yorkshire is that we can't always have the best of weather! Hope you're having an awesome day.
