No new oil pastel paintings this week, life has a way of creating interruptions that demand attention.
The biggest setback was that my computer finally decided to say goodbye – it’s been on the outs for a while but I’ve avoided buying a new one for as long as possible. So this week saw a good chunk of time researching and then shopping around for a new laptop – oh wow things have definitely changed since I last bought a computer. One will be arriving early next week, but I know I’ll be on a steep learning curve between new system terminology and processes. Hopefully the easy part will be transferring my files to the new computer – if no problems, I’ll be good to go.
Needless to say little was done by way of oil pastels this week, although I have an underpainting completed for a new oil pastel and hope to post the final painting in next couple of days.
Have a great weekend, it’s my b-day today so I’ll be out and about celebrating my new age – LOL!
BTW please enjoy a new visitor (I’ll call, Slow Poke) to our yard this week, and yes he was just as big as he seems in this photograph!!! I had to pick him up and carry him to the pond across the street from us – yikes, he hissed!
