The Painting

It’s been a long cold snowy winter here in the northeast. But yesterday and today the sun shone brightly and the temps were above 40.

I do quite well when the sun shines. After months of being sick acute asthmatic bronchitis. I was feeling very energetic and decidedly creative. I decided to take on a much larger painting.

The living room.

Of course the fact they drilled holes in every wall and did a so so job spackling also pushed me to paint. I just couldn’t stand the white uneven blotches every where.

I started around 9am I moved all the furniture from one wall at a time. Using sand paper I started on each wall wiped them down, and swept the floor, there went my breathing again. With trusty angled brush in hand I gave the walls a quick brush for dust then painted all the edges, then I rolled the walls with touch ups here and there.

Figured while I was at it I would spring clean and move all the furniture. I finished the entire room by around 7:30 pm. Where I collapsed on the chair cuppa tea in hand. The colour is bright and cheery, well I think it is and it’s a lovely backdrop to the pastel I did (my version of a Mary Cassatt). Could be a touch too much for some. But I am finding it calming and I feel inspired to paint on a canvas now.

It’s now 2 days later, I don’t think there is a muscle in my body that isn’t screaming – what were you thinking spring clean, move furniture, sand and paint all in one day………
