I Do Day 10

A little improvement from yesterday - it's 11:17.  Plenty of time.

This one is based on a photo that my brother in law gave me.  The story is mine

I Do
"On June  1982, Larry married Marian a sexy older woman.  The began to beget 3 children, Barbara of Rooster fame, Steven of long distance relationship fame and David of cuteness fame.  They ran away from Montreal to Ottawa where they are living happily ever after."

They are still married.

Day 7 I Do

I am using up a lot of white.  I am trying to think of new things to say but that's all I could come up with.
White flowers use a lot of white, titanium white
I Do
That does remind me of an aside.  If you have Netflix watch the documentary "Beltracchi the Art of Forgery".  He got caught because he used a tube of paint which had titanium white in it, not listed on the label.  The era he was forging didn't have that type of paint.

Anyway my painting is an original not signed because I always forget, full of titanium white.  Feel free to test it.

Day 6 I do

When training a dog the first time he does something wrong it is a mistake, 2nd time isn't good and after the third time it may become a habit.  I made 2, let me see what is the technical term, sucky paintings. If I wasn't doing the 30 in 30 I would have gessoed them so fast that I would have broken the sound barrier.  

I don't want to make bad paintings a habit.  I got up early this morning, made a really big pot of strong coffee and went off to my studio with a positive mind.  I then promptly started to clean some drawers I haven't touched in a while. I did eventually got brave and attacked a canvas.

I like today's.  I wasn't going to write I do ( since yesterday's "I Po"), but you can't break a theme just because things aren't going well. Sometimes you have to stick to the plan.

I Do
Phew the bad streak is ended.

Day 5 I Do

It's not getting better. 
I liked the flowers in this paintings and I was fooling around with the script and having a grand old time
I Do Day 5
But I was so busy swirling that I made it into a P instead of a D.  Does it look like "I Po" to you?
