Today is Wednesday and I am dressed up in my finest painting outfit.  I feel quite fresh considering it was a late night last night.  If you had passed by, you would have seen me sketching out a new sea-scape on that large canvas. Then slurping down a night-cap of hot lemon and ginger tea with a tot of rum (poor man's hot whisky toddy?).

This morning I werked on the meeting of 2 contrasting neon colours: the bright green and the orange.  It will need more werk when it is dry.  Having focussed almost completely on 'Home Sweet Home' for the past 3 sessions, I have put it aside.

This afternoon I re-started werk on the blue neon morse-code. Laying on the paint nice and thick - rich and deep Phthalo Blue - until the canvas won't take any more wet-on-wet paint action.

And then I sit, and I wonder, and I think: what I can do now to fill another hour or so?

There is a large canvas begging to be started, and so I must oblige.  Out comes the ink and the brush and to werk I go.


  1. Can't wait to see the finish product!
