inconstancy!

I don’t care if that’s a real word or not. DEAL with it.

So my life, in this moment, consists of manically poring through wedding websites, listening to quiet romantic music, and pondering why the little dangling thing at the back of my throat is still so swollen I’m practically swallowing it. Charming, I know.

Tomorrow I’m going to celebrate my favorite holiday of all time: the Fourth of July. Some idi@s are setting off fireworks now, the dum dums. I don’t like it when people jump the gate with holiday celebrating! The Fourth of July is a sacred American tradition that should be observed with holy sanctity. (Not being sacrilegious right now I swear).

Anyway, I will be celebrating by watching my coworkers get smashed. After I have the delight of seeing THAT  I’ll be heading down to the OldPort with my high school crush and all my friends.

Tomorrow I plan on taking a THOUSAND pictures and then posting the truly delightful ones here. So there, you nonexistent viewer — you have something to live for.

bonne chance, people of earth. (setting off on a good note).

now playing: wounded by third eye blind

This morning, among other things, I began prep for a new painting I started a couple of weeks ago. I did the wash in white, so it’s taken a while for the paint to even become tacky. Anyway I decided on what I wanted to paint this morning when I woke up and then I invented a different way of thinning the paint. It isn’t new, it’s just different for me.

Used:

Mason jar
Plastic paint knife
too much paint thinner
too much paint.

Then I closed the jar and shook it up really good. I was pleased with the result until I needed to down grade the color, and I darkened it with the wrong shade of black. I redeemed everything by just putting a dollop of undiluted cerulean on the the canvas and mixing THAT with the turpentine-paint mixture. It came out nicely because I used a fan brush, which is actually a pain in the butt to do oils with but whatever.

So here it is:


We’ll see how it goes.

I love how mundane I sound today. It’s like I’m almost a normal person, who does nothing interesting or insane.
