Light and shadows ~ that is what I have been balancing outside in my life all week. In the painting of Allie, (Allie's Present) what has been darkish, varying shades of dark. Within this painting of Kate the inverse does work. When I wrote my fantasy down, I didn't find
it before this morning. Fantasy: I see that a low pattern of darks; darker darks and darks. I'm inverting the image. Now it is a pattern of lights ~ high lights lights and darker lights. Inversely proportional.
This small dog flipped my life up! And only when it looked like she could maybe not be prosperous, the bets were amped-up by her. Toward the close of the week that I went along to vacuum. This time she lay on the floor in my bedroom. So I informed her I was planning to close the doorway while the vacuum raced. As soon as I came back fifteen minutes later she was under the bed. I let her live. Assessing her on throughout the morning, I coaxed her out. I put her on the afghan from the room and sat there about to the floor with her and held her while she churns.
During the next day or two we worked at getting to know one another. Right into an afghan that has been on the floor, she squirmed out of my arms and down between your back seats along the road home. She wished to stay there after we got home. At the house I put it down and found yet another afghan. Immediately she left the following nest. She is a nester.

The day after she arrived, I took out the vacuum to tidy up. I saw her out of the corner of my head as I chose the vacuum out of this closet. The deck door was open and spying the vacuum, and she slipped out. About vacuuming I went. Jim came in a short while later and asked where she was. No-where! She'd disappeared! We spent the next hour searching the yard, surrounding forests and adjacent neighbors' lawns.
"I really don't understand what happened for you," I said out loud to her. "I'm sorry. I am so sorry it happened, whatever it had been." I continued. I stroked her thoughts, as I talked. So that since I did I felt that my ego let go of whatever it had been had kept me doing until I thought I'd drop. We allow it move.
In my birthday, then I painted these two quick paintings of Sneekers now. She sat a thing that I never permitted a dog! I had to paint quickly because positions changed regularly. Therefore I used alizarin crimson to draw her silhouette directly the couch is brick-red. By the time I had the find
contours in, she'd proceeded. By softly blocking within the colors I responded.
At the kennel we met with the other dog Jim wanted me to see. A shy little dog, 'Honey, '' was at a kennel with yet another dog. She looked small with a face that was rounded. Reading her card we discovered she had been actually two yrs of age ~ adult! This pooch was just 2-4 lbs a dueschund/labrador mixture. She charmed us both. As Jim made agreements to take her home to see if Kate would approve hi, I agreed.
The obelisk Jim and I had assembled just last weekend had been filled with cucumber and tomato vines. I stumbled while I painted, too idle to stand, I thought to myself. I set up a canvas than I use en plein air. This 1 is 203 x 243, maybe not huge but significantly larger than the 9 x 12s I often utilize.
Nesting is something I haven't been good at. It seems I am always running around doing something. Sit and remain still? Hard for me to imagine that being done by me. Got to be DOING something.
A neighbor paddled with his two children in my painting, as I was painting. They ceased to grab a bass or two. Without even thinking whether I wanted them there or never, I immediately brushed them! Sunlight moved lower in the skies and I felt that the necessity. Most of the garden was in shadows.
Back at the house, 'Sneekers', once we'd started calling her had been curled up at a brand new nest behind Jim's computer desk. There isn't much distance back between the desk and wall of windows. Only a passage way for into also a pile of wires!
Katie just isn't getting any younger. I have been thinking since we adopted her 14 years 14, of painting. I finally achieved this this week! I pictured painting her to an antique ivory coloured bedspread which she was used to sleep years ago, and have always been intrigued by her white on white coloring.
As each day passed I spent more and more hours coaxing her out of her nest. Slowing me down, I guess. I did not feel just therefore that I painted a view of my vegetable garden and then set out my easel on the deck.
Jim wanted me to see two pooches he'd seen and returned to express he had stopped at the SPCA as I ended up painting Kate. Reluctantly, I went. Among the dogs he'd explained about was out front getting clipped and brushed, when we came. Fur and dog mess was anywhere! We went inside immediately. "No way," I thought to my Self.
I went and got the following canvas. This time she remained snoozing. Afraid she would move back, '' I lasted at the pace that was speedy. I enjoyed this one's quality, playful. "So imagine in my sofa isn't very pink?" In this manner I may have a sofa! Sleeping there on my spot on the settee she lasted teaching me to play. The grim thing she's currently sleeping on is a needlepoint pillow I made. I let her sleep! I myself am a hard case, I admit. Changing a workaholic? FAITH ... plays with a lady! I guess a old dog CAN learn new tricks.

birthday and I could tell him how old I am now when Dad called to wish me Happy Birthday! "Consider it before you get the other dog," I cautioned that my Self.
This dream allow me to see what's been going on weekly! Between the new dog and the paintings I have been balancing my life, inverting my view on things! '' I played. I played the vision ... letting the canoe of children fishing input in my world without even believing as to whether it would upset my world or never! I let the match I played in my own vegetable garden.
