Something good happened: my dear friend Jo from Michigan came to stay with us for a while. Then something bad happened: the retaining wall in the back of our house (and I mean what keeps our house from tumbling into our neighbor's house) started to collapse. An emergency crew has worked ONE MONTH on rebuilding the wall. They finished it yesterday.
I didn't feel like doing artwork, but discovered once I forced myself to begin, it was pretty relaxing. That's a good lesson right there.
Tim and I have also slipped out for a couple of mental health breaks with our art group. These notan paintings were done a couple of weeks ago when the topic of discussion was notan / patterns of light and dark.
