Well not to put too fine a point on things - its freezing!
Barely reached 13 degrees, and with drizzly rain... a great day for staying side, drinking tea, and looking out the window.
Whatever happened to the clear blue skies, with a crisp morning, turning into nice warmth in the sun - the usual Brisbane winter's I dream about! I am ever hopeful they will return tomorrow - 19 degrees is much more civilised.
I have totally neglected my studio this week. It is simply too cold in there! Thinking I should just make a posy in the corner of the family room. Right under the reverse cycle air con - of course!
But being inside, and having re-camped myself (for work though, not fun) in the much warmer family room, it is a good chance to consider how we use the different spaces in the home. Why should the studio be the coldest & hottest room in the house? A little oil and turps, a few paint splatters, a little spilled water... nothing to worry about. really. I could set up an art easle right here. Maybe I will!
Here is an oil painting that I've been looking at this week, that I painted last year. I still like it... which is a good thing!
I really need to get back into the art groove - there are so many fantastic opportunities around!
Sharing with Paint Party Friday. And if you are Brisbane I hope you have a nice warm spot for snuggling under a blanket!
Where's your best spot, or best tip, to be creative when it's cold out ( and in!) ?
