The house is torn up. The studio is empty. The living room is filled with boxes, one corner for Josh, the other for me. The shower stall will be done Monday. The shower door will be measured and ordered on Monday, too. The dogs will be boarded out Monday through Tuesday night because of the fact the flooring is going in on Tuesday day, starting at 730 a.m. Thursday the painter starts. Saturday the vanities arrive. Wednesday next the painter finishes and the new toilets are installed. Then the vanities are installed and the template made for the counter tops. We will have a shower that works – finally! hooray! – but we will not be able to use it until the door is installed. We will be brushing our teeth in the kitchen sink (ewwwww!). I go back to the doc on Tuesday to have my wrist and finger checked 3 weeks after my fall.
And . . . we have been packing, eating junk food, brewing beer, trying to have a life, and painting in between – pictures and samples of paint on the wall.
I will post photos of the new house stuff sometime later, but today, here are the things – little things, no bigger than 7×10 at the most – I’ve been painting and drawing, just to stay sane. The painting of the barn needs a bit of help – the roof is too white, and it looks like the windows are some strange eye infection. The meadowlark needs more contrast. I could go on, but I need to go to work on my other stuff.
