I went for a walk this afternoon. It was exceptionally cold but I was like a cat on a hot tin roof at home. Something is obviously up but I'm not sure yet what that is, so I took myself off in the cold for a walk.
There are lots of walks around here. I can either go straight up Red Hill or walk around Narrabundah and Red Hill and look at the gardens. Normally I see nobody because Canberra is like that but today there were a few other hardy souls out walking, kicking a ball in the park, exercising their dogs.
Towards home there were a few spits of rain (or was it sleet?) The sun was shining the whole time so I got to see a rainbow. I love rainbows. A great reminder that there is a pot of gold out there, just waiting to be found.
This morning Miss B and I went to see Paper Towns at the movies. It is based on the book by John Green and I really liked it. No car chases, no one died, unlike the last movie I saw...but that's part of the fun of the movies isn't it?
Then this afternoon I painted. I bought some roses yesterday and they are already drooping...ripped off...where oh where do you buy decent flowers in Canberra, but I figured I would use them for inspiration. Then I did about half of another painting, this time of poppies.
My paintings at Artistic Vision Gallery are watercolours but I really love the freedom that comes with oils and a palette knife.
I will put them in the gallery. I'm also going to send some paintings to Brisbane for an exhibition in early September. If I had an art patron I could go there with my paintings, so come on Universe, I deserve...
