I spent a couple of days just thinking (agonizing?) about this challenge for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks "week 21-22" challenge. Then I spent most of the day yesterday painting. THEN I
had to photograph the painting.
You know how my digital camera battles with me - this morning it was extremely surly. To say that this photo is the best of the dozens of photos is a pretty sad commentary. I did manage to eliminate most of the lights reflections, but the colors aren't true to the painting. e.g. the windows are NOT blue! If the overcast and cold weather clears up and the temp goes above the 20's, I'll try taking some photos outside. Sheesh.
Other than battling my digital camera and agonizing about painting a "building", my life is great. Casey, our big (90 lbs) boxer dog is leaning against my leg and looking at me with those "when will the beatings ever end?" look. He wants to go for our walk around the neighborhood but he'll have to wait a while as I'm a cold temperature wuss this morning. It appears that we're getting a light "frozen rain" (sleet) now. Dang!
