It was a gray, rainy morning, feeling far more like a Monday than a Friday, but I was determined to make the most of it. I needed to flip the switch + put a positive spin on the start of my weekend, so I settled in w/ some coffee + pulled some dreamy images of cool spaces that allow art to dominate a room. I plan to spend the majority of my weekend in the studio and love having resources like these to help push my techniques in new directions. I'm close to finishing two oil paintings - both 4 ft tall x 2 ft wide (hooray) and I'm anxious to get back to exploring w/ the acrylics I picked up for some smaller works. If things go well, I may be able to reach my goal of finishing five paintings in the month of July - wish me luck!
