Saturdays are one of my most favourite days. I love it in the spring and summer when i venture down to the market early on a Saturday morning while Dave is home still blissfully slumbering(he loves his sleep in...me, not so much). However today was not one of those days.
Instead today was spent in the studio...I have been working on a big landscape, many parts of it I'm feeling good about, but there is a large area that is confounding me, so i know i need to give it a little longer to perculate in my brain. For the time being, ignoring it is the best answer...I have faith in time to work it out.
In the meantime I have been completely absorbed in the history of the woman and the icon, CHANEL. The book is by Lisa Chaney. I am listening to it on audio. A good read for fashionistas(or old fashion students) and anyone interested in the power of determination. Her rise from a very miserable childhood into one of the worlds most iconic and sought after designers, is riveting in my opinion.
And something about painting hydrangea's while I listened, just seemed right too. A nice Saturday.
