Morning Glory

I painted this morning glory painting in my car.  I might start doing all of my painting in the car! Nobody asks you to find their lost sock or to type something up for them when you are sitting in the car. The car appears to be an excellent work zone! It would be even better if my steering wheel were removable and the air conditioner could run for hours without depleting the battery…and if it had a utility sink.

I sat on this painting for two days before adding it to the blog. I finished it on Saturday night. I didn’t really like it. It needed something. It needed pizazz. It needed sparkle. It needed magic.

So this morning I decided to add some ink to it. I love watercolors and ink together. I like the way the ink makes the colors pop.

I am going to keep this post short. I am in the middle of doing some deep cleaning. I just cleaned out three cabinets in the kitchen. I do my Spring cleaning in the Fall!

Plus, we think we might have a mouse in the kitchen. Life in the country! Yuck. Tiny-Small is so excited. She hopes the mouse is white with big ears and she want to hug him when we find him. She has plans to pet him and make him little vests and feed him candy out her hand. I may have let her watch Stewart Little at a very impressionable age. Still, I completely blame all of her mouse-loving ways on her father. He loves all of the animals. All of them. The thought of a mouse in my kitchen is keeping me up at night. I am sure before long Jim will be using this mouse debacle as an excuse to convince me that we need a pet snake.

Yep. I just fainted. Snakes rank right up there with sharks for me.

I hope you are having a wonderful, snake free Monday! Unless of course you love snakes…then I hope you are a having a snake-filled Monday far, far away from where I live.

  1. I think we live in the same fractured universe. Tonight, I painted in my car, added metallic watercolors to the painting and add ink outlines. I don’t have a mouse (that I know of), but my mom found a (rattle)snake in the utility room today.

    BTW, I want a big utility van that I can set up as my art studio on wheels, complete with generator. I doubt the sink will happen, but I could hang an orange cooler above a sink basin that empties into a five gallon bucket.

    1. Your poor mom. I feel creepy just thinking about it. My mom had one on her back porch once, coiled up under her chair. It makes me feel weak in the knees.

      I knew someone that had converted an old rv into a studio. It was pretty cool, but I like the van idea even better. You could travel around painting. That would be amazing.
