More playing

Yesterday was not a good day as the black dog sat on my shoulder for a large part of it. I think it is the lack of sun, we hadnt seen any for days and days, and the fact that with no car for me I cant go any where except when it is available, and it hasnt been very available lately.
So today to get out of it I decided to paint, anything, not something structured, although I guess this is but I dont normally do abstracts. I had found some odd tins of watercolour paints that my parents had and I wanted to use them. I would imagine they are student paitns but they are german and a bit interesting.
The sun came out in the sun room after a frost last night and it has been a lovely day and I am trying to fill it with colour. I dont quite think this is finished but we will see it has served a purpose. I would almost like to use it as a base for a collage.
I have also been doing a very bright bit of textile stuff too, the fact that I hadnt quite read the pattern correctly doesnt really matter, it is black velvet colovered in sweets papers and is fun.

Play with colour, that's good. I was feeling good today until I read the Fiji news on various internet sites. It's really 'Alice in Wonderland' scenario over there. They've just expelled the New Zealand High Commissioner - probably for some tiff over the seating at a junior rugby match. And he's a neighbour to the Interim PM Bainimarama!
Sacked my son's former boss, and the stories go on and on.

I really like this. Reminds me of what I did while the Vietnamese artist snubbed me. Glad the sun came out. My mood is completely subject to the weather. Hope the car comes your way. Thankfully, we have the internet to share these things.
