Well, this morning I took my DW to work and then I went food shopping. I KNOW!!!
It is only Monday and I always do the food shopping on Tuesday!!!!! As I mentioned before, I'm trying to be less of a creature of habit and more of a free spirit and do what I do when I do!!! :>)
After food shopping I had to go to Sam's Club and then to our storage facility to get a couple of things out to use in the UNIT ON THE HILL. I also stopped at the local art store and picked up some much needed paints.
I have not mentioned ED (my plein air easel) lately as he has been behaving quite well - until this morning!!!! I started a very quick painting after all my errands were done and I of course was working with vim & vigor! ED seemed to feel he was being bounced around a bit too much and started to complain!!! I hate COMPLAINING!!!!!
So I asked Ed if he would like to go plein air painting with me at the Grand Canyon?
ED - too quickly responded YES without thinking so I said "ED - I have a little story to tell you." I said "ED--on average each year 2 and 1/2 people fall into the Canyon!!! If you have any complaints to register, perhaps we could change that statistic to:
2 1/2 people PLUS ONE EASEL!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say ED had no complaints and said "JR---- PAINT WITH AS MUCH VIM & VIGOR AS YOU WANT!" He also suggested that we skip the painting trip to the Grand Canyon :>)
Soooooo now that ED is all squared away - this is a very, very, very quick painting done on 9x12 rolled canvas, using a palette knife with shooshes of globs and blobs of thick juicy paint applied with expression, emotion and spontaneity in color and form. In other words ----- ME being ME!!!
Some detail for the detailed oriented blog buddies - God love ya!!!!
Enjoy the day my friends.
