I hope you enjoy my new painting! “Pedal Power,” methinks, is the title. What youthinks? It feels so good to paint again after a whole week of abstinence. “Every day that you paint is a good day,” Bob Ross used to say, and I completely agree.
I’ve decided to skip some of the duller journal entries of the knit, and just share the sparkly ones. 🙂
May 31 8:05 – 9:05
Knit in soft rain today. Rain trickled down my ear. Rain collected on my hairs on my fingers. I asked a boy on his way to school to videotape me but he didn’t have time, he said, even though he was super early. I said good morning and tried to talk to two boys but they totally ignored me! I hate that! And I hate the dark tinted car windows that shun all exchange and the earbuds that block communication. But I enjoyed the sit. Accepting the rain just made it another experience to relish. Warm rain. Freshness. Birds. Mournful whistle of train like a dying loon. G. came and videotaped me knitting in the rain…
4:11-5:20 knit in the afternoon
Things have brightened up. The bench dried off. My enthusiastic lady with the shade hat came by excited to see the progress! Jay birds scolded while a lawn mower droned on and on. I had a busy mind this afternoon. So happy to be free to make art full-time. R. and G. drove by and said hi. A man said, “That’s a long leash you have there.” I retorted, “It’s NOT a leash!”
