Dining room artPosted: February 23, 2011 | |
Until fairly recently this is what the southwest corner of our dining room looked like. I never loved it. The prints just sort of ended up there. Someday I’ll buy or make a real painting that’s perfect. Until then this in an improvement:
The Whiz and I bought this in B.C. years and years and years ago. I still love the colors and the simple composition. It’s just a print that’s been brushed with clear gesso to look like a painting. I painted the frame last night. It was stained and nasty.
In other news: I made a sweet potato ginger peanut soup for dinner tonight and quinoa oat whole wheat bread (ala bread machine). I thought both were good but Whiz is getting sick and didn’t eat much. Neither did the Goobernator. Sigh. I also planned out dinners for the week and bought groceries today. AND I bought a pair of skinny jeans at Target for $5 on clearance. Mostly as a motivator to stay away from sugar and on top of the pilates. Also purchased: 10 gallons of water. I’m on the home stretch of disaster preparedness.
