I have had to have a break from my computer for the past week and got stuck into painting for our exhibition which opens in a few weeks.
In the weekend I got to sit on the beach and painted the mountain. It was the most perfect day the sun was shinning and there was no wind.
I found some driftwood and twine to make an easel and Shaughan turned a stump over to use as a table and a beautiful smooth rock was my pallet. I did take canvas out there but found a piece of wood instead, I just I love painting on boards that I find at the beach. I am happy to take other creative people out to the beach to paint if you want to come with me. I also like making natural sculptures while I'm there and when I left my beach side studio I was happy with the sculpture I left.
Shaughan threw in a few fishing rods but he had no luck. A guy who put his long line out was a happy man, catching an 11kg snapper, it was a big mama about 50 or 60 years old, Shaughan reckons. That fish is on a boogie board.
Life has been fantastic! I have been pumping out the paintings and catching up with lots of friends.
I started a jigsaw on Saturday night and have had a ball doing it, a bit addictive.
I heard the Mangaweka festival was a big hit and everyone had fun who went there on Saturday night.
My message for the day was: We are happy to offer you our solutions, as your happiness makes us happy and is fulfillment of God's will. God's will is for you to be happy!
We are having date night tonight, we picked out of the tin - Romantic Picnic. We have decided the location but I have been thinking of a menu, I may go and do some baking if the day has time. I love our Wednesday nights with no TV its a good time to give each other attention.
I finished the newsletter for the Art Society, you can read it at http://www.wanganuiartsociety.co.nz/
I really enjoyed my time spent on creating it, hopefully there will be more information from the members in the next issue.
I'm listening to Bad Ass a hard house tune my friends and I used to go crazy dancing to. I miss dancing with my clubbing friends. Love to you all what ever you are doing.
I have spent many hours on the computer an some advice to you is get a good mouse pad, seat, mouse and chair and make sure you take a break every hour at least! I love sitting at my computer for hours and now I can't do it without getting sore arms, fingers and wrists because I didn't have a those things I have listed and didn't listen to people when they said make sure you take a break, trust me you don't want this to happen to you because it sucks!
