A Little Tuesday Love..

Good morning everyone,
I wanted to stop in and just get a bit of uplifting for the week ahead.  Around here, its End of Grade testing week...and, well, my oh my are my nerves all torn up.  Today officially starts the test, and I just can't stand the pressure.  My kids at school just work so hard, so I am hoping the best for them that all goes well....and then, my kid at home that puts so much pressure on himself about school and his grades...serious pressure!!!  I will never forget the look on his face back in 4th grade when I got to his school to pick him up and he did not pass his reading test...ugh...I just can't take it...  So...please send good energy and vibes this way...we are shooting for 4's all around...ok...

Now, to the studio...well, my studio away from home at the Durham Arts Council where I am taking my class....






















Some nights are just better than others...and last night was just not a good night.  I don't know what the deal is with me and a canvas...not even sure of what.  I start, but then, well thats about it.  I have no idea of where to go, and that drives me crazy.  So, I start, start again, and again.  Thank goodness for gesso!!!

I am not even sure of why this photo is turned on its side.....I think its time to kiss my lovely scanner goodbye.  Its been a good long run, but now, it simply wont work.  So, I have to take the long route with taking a picture with my phone, then email, then...blah, blah, blah....

I hope that you guys have a great week....
Thanks in advance for the good vibes!!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

sometimes i go blank in front of a canvas too. ever think of doing a journal page on canvas. use some of the same materials and techniques and see what comes. you can always alter it, add, and so on...

praying peace over you and your kiddos this week. that they do their best and not stress too much.

xxoo

That's probably one reason you're such a good teacher and mom ... you care so much. Sending you and all your kids (school and home) my Best Good Luck Vibes.

love gesso. You can just layer and layer and it usually can come out pretty interesting!
