i can not believe what a gorgeous day it is here in chicago! my mac tells me it's going to be nice all week. thanks mac!
the theme for november 4 nanojoumo was beauty.
sorry about the shadow. it seemed like a good idea to photograph it in the sun. you can barely see, but i stenciled dots all over the page. i used stencil creme and a foam brush. not nearly as satisfying as spray paint. i might be able to get in some more spray paint this week if the wind stays calm.
this spring we bought a beautiful little bush. it's called an itea. we had this hideously ugly pine tree bush that wasn't too awfully hard to remove. the thing i like best about the itea is so far it looks beautiful in every season. here it is when we planted it. it's covered in sweet little flowers. in the summer it was green and it's height complimented the other plants.
this is what it looks like now.
i love the colors.
i have some catching up to do for nanojoumo. solitude, felicity and compassion. but i did work in my journal nonetheless. i needed some black gesso in there. i'm finding it's hard for me to complete a journal page in one day. they seem to turn out too simple. but it's good practice to go down to the studio at the same time every day.
off to the studio now. taking a walk when the bears game is over. i'll be bringing my phone for the camera, even though i have yet to figure out how to get the pictures from the camera to the mac. i'll have to explore the verizon site a little bit.
have a great day! i hope it's beautiful by you too.
