my creative space





my space was pretty hectic today {usual i guess}. after colouring my hair, i started the first paint layer on one of the four new ones in the top picture. i made some product images for 2 prints {more on flickr} and finished off the 'twilight mist' painting {didn't get very good shots of that to show}.

tomorrow instead of having friday as a painting day i am off to my dad's place again {by myself this time} for a 2 day visit. my step mother has organised my sister and i to meet him at his retirement staff 'party' at the local surf life saving club - and he is none the wiser!! he has been playing down his retirement but we all feel that it's actually starting to be a big deal, so hopefully the surprise of having us there will be good for him. for some reason images from 'about schmidt' keep popping into my head, but no doubt it will be absolutely nothing like that! am looking forward to it - bar the flight and being away from home for 2 nights {it still seems weird to leave the kids but i guess it's only the second time away overnite}.
