A week ago Thursday I finished one of many layers of a portrait commission I am working on and most of it is still soaking wet! I went online and ordered some Utrecht white which I hope will arrive soon. I hope this is not a trend. I can't handle waiting all this time to get to each layer. I don't even use any kind of medium, just mineral spirits. As always, I am working on a number of paintings at the same time but this drying time has got to speed up. I am way behind in uploading work so I will get to that soon. There is no rest for workaholics!
Tonight my back is hurting which is nothing new. I used to have horrible back pain due to a ruptured disc but I worked hard to build myself up and I don't have that excrutiating pain down my legs anymore. I went back to skating and that was the end of severe back pain, but I do get sore. I decided I needed to do something that is life affirming so I asked my husband if stuffing five fudge brownies in my mouth would be a life affirming experience. He said it might be a fat affirming experience for me and a killer experience for him since he can't handle wheat.
Oh well! They sure look good in the pan but I think I will save them for tomorrow's get together at my in-laws.
Mindy is back in her office! I was glad to see my drawing again on the wall opposite her desk. The show is getting good reviews so I think it will last. Look for "Reaching Out" on The Mindy Project on Tuesday nights at 9:30 pm.
