Painting, Technology, and All That

A new work on the table, finally!

Technology is annoying. It's supposed to be a time saver, but guess what? It's not. Have you found that out yet. Yes, it does things we never thought we could do, or should do. Let me just say when it doesn't feel like working no amount of prodding will help it do anything. Nope.

I started a new painting today. Yesterday I was busy with The Mr. doing some things that had to be done. Afterwards he was home all day hanging around. No painting for me. I did the house stuff and found some time to finish another knotted bracelet, and begin and finish another. Kind of productive, but not painting.

Today was semi-free. Wrapped up the morning and decided to post my goings on, but my camera would not cooperate. No, the battery was dying and no matter what I did it would not just spit out my photos so I could get on with it!

While I wait for the battery to charge I will tell you about my latest painting. Trying to decide if this one should be a larger size the other day, I promptly forgot all about that and penciled in my subject. Ok, so that was dumb. Then I forgot all about measuring out a border because these watercolor blocks are weird sizes. Marking out a border helps me keep the work in line so a matte doesn't cover the edges too much.

Ok, forget it. I took photos of my start. I took photos of yesterday's bracelets. I sat down to write my post, download the photos and move ahead. Ah, not so fast! Battery is dead. Then the computer tells me I am not connected to the internet. What? I say it is!

Here we go. Battery half way charged and the photos are uploaded! Happy day at last.
