It was a nice long weekend. Art, relaxing, dinner with D’s parents-all good stuff.On Friday, we went out to a pool hall for a going away party for his bartender friend, Mark. Mark, is moving to Vancouver, so he invited us out for one last round of drinks and pool. Mark is a nice, but tough guy. Think Henry Rollins with fewer tattoos. After a few drinks, Hubby and I played pool and of course he kicked my butt because I have only played a handful of times, while Hubby used to be part of a pool league!
On Saturday, we cleaned up a bit and went to the Cumberland Market for some fresh produce.
There wasn’t as much for sale as we had hoped, so we still ended up going to the grocery store after wards, but at least we bought some stuff and supported local farmers. 🙂 Jen came over and after chatting and food and drink (I try to be a good hostess), we went to work. We began working in grey scale and painted squares from white to black, as well as painted an orange and mug in the same shades.
Eventually, we will move on to colour, but it is important to learn about value and shading first. She also took some pictures of me for portrait work next week. (Question: Do you guys like how you look in pictures? Because sometimes I look o.k., but other times , I swear I look exactly like Rizzo the rat from The Muppets! LOL) Saturday evening we went to the dog park with Selena and I took this picture of her playing with Lemon. They really bounce off each other, it’s kind of like modern dance except with fake snarling and drool:
On Sunday, Hubby and I moved one of my parents sheds to the other side of their backyard and we watched a video of their brand spankin’ new house! I am SO very excited for them! I know moving is a lot of work, but it is thrilling! Holiday Monday, I did some more painting and we went to his parents for dinner. I gave his parents that wine case I made and I hope that they like it! I will probably make more like them! (Assuming I can find more blank wooden wine cases)
That’s the recap, I hope you guys had a nice long weekend!
