Curious week, this week. Things are slowly opening up but not many are out and about.
I am one of those that didn't get out much before the pandemic, and won't be out much after the restrictions are opened. I imagine after this weekend we will see more activity.
I bought 3 crappy canvases at Michaels this week for $10. You get what you pay for and these are not worth a penny more than $10. But the good news is that when I paint on a canvas like
that, or an old used canvas, I tend to paint much looser, which I like. So the first day I had a very busy canvas AND a very purple canvas. So the next day I got up and used chalk to draw a design on the dry paint. I mixed a bit of black in the purple and used some white and completely changed it.
I like this but I don't like the canvas...oh well.
Then I dug out an old painting and reworked it a bit. I am not sure about it yet.
And the good news is, one of my favorite orchids is blooming this week.
This is a dendrobium amabile nobile and it reminds me of egg yolks.
This plant has a dozen bloom stems, a record for it. I repotted it last spring. This year, so far I have divided and repotted 16 plants. It is hard, dirty work. I don't need to tell you what my hands and nails look like.
Wishing all a Happy PPF
