Abstract Painting #1 & Some Ramblings

Abstract Painting #1 & Some Ramblings

Just felt like doing some abstract watercolours today! Sometimes it's nice to not paint anything specific... just let your thoughts and hands wander. All of todays exercises were quite small... about 6" square. This one makes me feel pretty happy. I wish it were huge so I could hang it on the wall! Maybe I will anyways. 

All I want to do these days is hang out in the nursery and dream about what our baby will be like. The nursery is a total mess, but it has a comfy recliner in it, and that's really the only thing that matters to me right now. 

Finn had surgery last week on his eyelids and today he got his cone off and sutures out! He's a free dog! We celebrated by playing tug on the living room floor (but then we were depressed when I couldn't get up and we just laid there for 25 minutes). Then he spent some quality time sniffing the cats to make sure they still smelled the same, which I am sure they do. 

The cats were thrilled. (Hah!)

You know what? I feel contented today. I'm not even sure why! Our house is a mess, I had two naps and then didn't do anything productive except mess around with paints, most of my body is aching from pregnancy pains.... and yet, I am sitting here smiling. I'm gonna go and pat some kitties and bother Jay by asking him tons of questions about his day. He will secretly love that.
