Another reason for not posting is that I have not been very creative this week at all. Have not been in the mood; maybe it's the moon again! Instead, I have been doing a lot of reading. Which is a good thing. I got out of the reading mode for a long, long time. Could hardly read a couple of paragraphs and was bored. Several weeks ago I read a book that Gemma recommended, and I loved it. Then I went out and bought another book and I couldn't put it down til it was done. Today I went to Borders and bought another book and browsed for probably an hour. I wanted to buy more but I had to watch the pennies! Thank goodness I have my reading mind back. I have missed it. I did order some Angelina fibers in wild colors. Have no idea what I will do with them yet.
DH has gone to Miami to be part of a peaceful protest outside a hotel that is hosting a travel fest. Of course, Aruba is represented there trying to get tourists to come to their beautiful island where the government is corrupt and people disappear. Anyhow, he is not actually protesting anything, but rather he and his group are simply making people aware that Natalee Holloway is still missing....from Aruba....and that it is coming up on two years, and that she should not just be forgotton. They are getting a lot of "thumbs-up" from the people of Miami. Ironic that in yesterday's news, there was an update on the case, and they are now finally searching on the property of the person who was the main suspect in her disappearance. I hope they can find out what happened to her, and bring closure and some sort of peace to her mother. I can imagine how I would feel if it were my daughter.
So anyway, since I didn't have any new art, I decided to post some old art becuz this is, after all, mainly an art site. This painting is one I did in oil on canvas paper awhile ago. It's good to pull out old work and critique it. I can see now why I put it away. Can you? What in heaven's name is the purpose of that half-circle tree branch hanging over the brook? It doesn't even have shape or form. It's just a "thing" slicing through the scene. Lesson learned!
Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful!!!
