Hey hey hey, it’s another Mandala painting for sale in my Etsy shop! Yowza.
I had a challenging afternoon trying to photograph the metallic paint and glitter with various camera settings and lighting. Reflective paint and glitter is very hard to photograph properly! I made a video of the Mandala that I will upload later.
They always look better in real life. True story.
Nevertheless, at some point I have to let go, huh? Off you go, “Mandala #3”, off into the world where someone will hopefully buy you ASAP just like Shoshanna did with Mandala #2. That was great!
I finished it up yesterday. It’s 16 inches round, with gold, silver, copper and bronze acrylic paint with many blends and layers of craft glitter AND metallic ink as well. A lot of work went into this baby. I like it.
Meanwhile, the injuries keep on comin’. This was a blister, but how cute is it that I coordinated my band-aid to my fingernails? (I have issues) I hit my knee really hard yesterday and got a lovely big bruise, but it didn’t interfere with my slooooow 3.5 mile “run” this afternoon. Phew.
Joshy started back on antibiotics for the cellulitis in his nose and has flu symptoms again today. We rarely get sick, yet the last time he was on antibiotics he had flu symptoms, here he is again on antibiotics with flu symptoms, I ask you: COINCIDENCE???
Last Friday I dropped these dudes off at the Frisbee golf course, got myself a nice orange spray tan, and then returned to catch the end of their game. I even threw a couple of discs myself…for the first time ever. Did I mention Josh bought me my own Frisbee golf discs? Yyyyyeah. Dude wants me to be athletic. Keep wishing, dude. I want to take up archery.
A rare pre-work self-portrait: vintage striped dress with floral embroidery and neon pink lipstain (not evident in this picture).
Last Friday was “International Mutt Day” (I learned via Instagram). My mutts and I went down to the river and had Good Times!
100% addictive. Buyer beware.
“Elle” magazine is one of the few I still read, and I always look forward to E. Jean’s advice column. What a broad!
Slightly dazed after work today, decompressing at the park. It’s been a weird couple of weeks. Good thing it’s still summer and I have dogs to hang out with after work–they reset my brain chemistry nicely!
Now: I’m off to snarf some Creamsicles and paint topcoat over my glitter nailpolish. VERY important items. So long, blog.
