I set this still life yesterday and started painting this morning. I was not sure if I could finish this today. But the patterns of this glass are so beautiful and fascinating that I forgot about taking a break and ended up with finishing it just now. After my tea time I am going back to my landscape which I am working on a few days.

Pink and Rose

I love Pink. It is the color of feminine dream I think. Someday I will decorate my room totally roses and pink. Nobody comes in but I and my kitties.

Weather is getting better and I feel like painting landscapes. So I went to Charles Towne Landing yesterday to take some pictures. This is the first English settlement in Carolina before they relocate in present Charleston. Almost 350 years ago, people’s life here must be very uncomfortable. I can not imagine what they went through. I walked slowly on the well maintained passageway taking pictures here and there. It was kind of cloudy day so that I could not get nice light and shadow effects but the scenery was beautiful. I had a wonderful day.

Valentine’s Day

When I saw this little tin guy in the antique store, I thought about the 50’s movies. Wearing the tuxedo, he is ready to start singing and dancing. The stories were always filled with the happiness and dreams. Sometimes I miss the old Hollywood movies which give me the simple entertainments and smile.

A kitty

I have two old cats. I am not sure how exactly old they are any more. Probably 15 to 18 years old. They are very happy living with us. A month ago I found a kitty sitting in the pet store for a quite while. Somehow all cats except her were adopted and she was in the large cage by herself for a few weeks. Of course crazy me took her home. I realized that a little cat and old cats are so different. She gets into everything she should not and run around day and night. ¬†Fortunately my old cats are totally OK with her and more or less ignore the new comer. Now she is sleeping on my lap peacefully…while I type.

It was a beautiful day today. I thought about going outside and paint. But it was my temporary insanity. Instead I went through my photographs in my computer and play with the composition using the photoshop. I really admire the plein-air artists.
