Well, this weekend my wife to be is away leaving me free reign over everything. Quickly I setup my xbox and played games until I was numb. Left the dishes and rummaged through the fridge and freezer for anything I could just eat that didn’t require a plate. The flat is full of possibilities, today was actually quite a nice day and I did consider heading out for a little cycle, ultimately I couldn’t be bothered putting socks on.
Hidden away down the back of the sofa are all my arts and crafts booty, There’s allsorts. A collection that has gathered over many years. Sat about watching some discovery channel LA ink was on. It’s crap tv but some of the art they do is pretty cool, anyway to the point, they had this women on who wanted one of her paintings as a tattoo. It made me a bit envious cause painting was something I always wanted to be better at. Then I remembered I had loads of paints…right then…what to paint. Nic has quite alot of nice art about the flat. I recently added a few bits including a nice photo I took in Skye, which she blew up and framed and my sigur ros poster. But I didn’t actually have any of my stuff framed…hmmm. A few weeks back I tiled our kitchen and whilst admiring my handy work and doing the dishes noticed a big frame hanging above the sink from ikea with some nice but pretty average artwork, coffee mug related. That’ll do nicely. I found some proper heavy duty oil paint paper while I was having a little tiday up that was just the right size.
Took me best part of 5 hours to do all in all (whilst watching random documentries). Mixture of gouache, watercolour and acrylic paint. So it’s Milk and 2 (tea or coffee) if you’re making. Right, back to playing games now.
Bigger one here if you want it.
