Yes, well...I said I was going to paint this...a gorgeous photo taken by Chania.
And I did...well, more accurately, I am. MUCH more difficult than I thought, which I am stubbornly putting down to the fact that it's been at least five years since I tried a 'serious' painting. Refusing to admit that I'm no artist!
I've taken a bit of 'artistic' licence as you can see (I added more rope after not one, but two people said they couldn't recognise it as a boat when it was like this..). Sheesh...everyone's a critic! Knitting dishcloths is much easier!
...but I am at the stage where I really can't stand the sight of it, and luckily back to work for two days means I can't do anymore for the moment anyway. Perhaps I'll be more enthusiastic come the weekend.
Thursdays are normally 'top ten' days, but because Wednesday is my non-work (aka stay at home and be creative) day, I've decided that each Thursday I will link up to Kootoyoo's fabulous my creative space meme. I've been ogling her site and others of her ilk for ages now. Do go and have a look at the real talent over there.
So from next week the top ten will be on Tuesdays, reserving Monday for 'my weekend project' posts. This is the only sure-fire way to ensure that I get off my butt and do something other than read on Saturday and Sunday. You lot keep me honest! Speaking of reading, I finished another book and the review can be found here.
Feedback from proper artists and art critics of the amateur variety gratefully accepted...I'm not giving up just yet!
going back to the books.
