Monday morning.


Monday morning and it’s raining cats and dogs this morning. ย ( It isn’t really that’s just a figure of speech) why that started is beyond me. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ I mean how could it rain ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿˆ &๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• perhaps it was described that way because all the cats and dogs went indoors when it rained. Anyway, answers on a postcard to interesting facts would be welcome.

I was awake very early yesterday morning because I had a painting idea. I actually started the painting at 6.30am. ย Well, honest truth that painting must have changed itself a dozen times in the course of eight hours work, spaced out through the day!

It must have had ten coats of paint appliedย thenย I scraped it off. The board is ready to collapse but I am not giving up.

It started as abstract, then it went to planets. Just when I felt I was getting somewhereย John my biggest critic…. sorry fan, said it looked like a Lego brick. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Suddenly I could see what he meant, I had four planets almost in each corner of the painting ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I was so mad ๐Ÿ˜ก did he really need to say that. ๐Ÿ˜ค I went to bed thinking ๐Ÿค”ย  but managed to sleep very well. This morning the first thing I did was go into the office come art room and take another look at it! ย All I could focus on was a Lego brick! Then I turned the painting around on its end to see if it looked better โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿค“ย ย Nope it was still a Lego brick.๐Ÿ˜ณ

I sat and looked at it for a while then took the painting to John and said…… What if I put another planet in the middle? He looked at me and I read his mind. ย ๐ŸŽฒ No it will then look like a dice ๐ŸŽฒ ๐Ÿ˜ซ

I may have to perform a planet removal today which is a delicate operation, you can’t get it on the National Health in England and I can’t afford to go private but it needs to be done!ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜”More later .
