In-process photos of "And Then I Woke".

My paint supply has yet to arrive, but I found an old tube of my much needed hue that had about a teaspoon left in it.  I squeezed every last drop out of the tube and was  able to lay down a little more whitish space on the canvas I'm working on.

The interesting thing about abstracts is that they can be flipped, turned, and hung in four possible ways.  This process is even more fun with larger pieces because the way a piece is hung can really change a room!

Below is the in process piece, "And Then I Woke", kind of a dream-inspired, prayer-petitioned composition that I've been updating this week after having it in a large closet for nearly twelve years.

 here's the piece right side up

I got a new iPhone this week after shattering my trusty 6 last week in a bike accident.  As much as I protested getting a new one (i am not a fan of new stuff in general), the camera in the 8 is really much better, and the colors more vivid and crisp.  I guess there's an upside to everything.

My car also died in the garage yesterday, so I'll be doing car stuff tomorrow.  Geez.  I hope that the rest of this week is a little easier on the ole pocketbook....
