venus, jupiter, and the crescent moon as i pulled into the post office on sunday night. jupiter! the next time they'll be this close (and visible) is november, 2052. the moon and jupiter at the same time! it makes me giddy!
i'm resting and recuperating from my foray out into the world. as wonderful as my time away was, i'm happy to be back in my quiet life again. and painting! i didn't paint while i was gone. five days... i missed it a lot. i've just started this face. she has grass for hair...
and this collage... painting in progress and more messing about to come.
i only recently discovered that paint splatters make almost everything instantly better.
the model on the collage page came from the clothing catalog, toast. the paper is heavy, and the photography stunning. i highly recommend it... i read about it on a blog whose name i no longer remember, but i say thank you none-the-less!
oh that i could capture the wonder of these walnuts in a photo. they come out of the shell in one piece, and they're so fresh they're almost juicy... given to me by the friend i stayed with, and grown by her friend.
yes, just peeking in... can you see me smiling as i reread your comments on last week's post?
