Today: Restitution

Such an incredible lightness in being.
I finished this painting yesterday afternoon.
Last night I had a dream where I was in a court rationalizing the shifts in style (No, I'm no abandoning line drawings and patterns, I just need to focus on the air around me) and I remember saying to those judging me, "It's still about the integrity of a good line. A good line is good for the ego. . ." at this point someone on the jury tried to correct my blanket statement by finishing it as I finished it by stating, "into perpetuity."

No, I don't know what it means, but I don't doubt it has something to do with the thoughts I had while I was painting. I can get really excited about a well-drawn line.

Are you wondering what's going on with the the nesting portion of this program? Well, the bathroom is nearly finished (hooray for me for staying on track!) and I've decided a new shower curtain is in order. I'm thinking seersucker may be what I'm looking for, although it's fairly summery and we'll soon be into fall. I'm kicking out the chrome corner caddy where we keep our 2 bottles of shampoo, 1 bottle of conditioner and 1 bar of soap, and mounting a single glass shelf. 4 shelves for 4 items is really not necessary.
Then I'll move back to the bedroom. I still haven't painted the bed black, though I've been planning to do that for a while. I just might paint it that black chalkboard paint, it would definitely give "doodling in bed" a whole new meaning. I ordered a rug from Sherwin Williams, an 8 x 10 for about $200. It reminds me of Rothko, exactly the calm and serene vibe I want for the bedroom.
My home is, after all, my sanctuary.

I've been looking a lot around our home lately, too, and trying to find ways to make it reflect who we are...the first step is to get a frame for your botanical print! I think I will hang it in the kitchen.
