Raining

#8157

Kept going on 8157. Almost everything gets re painted over and then by the time I come around to paint it again it is done in a different way. The ghosting of under painting is very interesting when it is contrasted with a thickly painted shape nearby or on top of it. I tend to work on parts of the painting that are easy to reach–the bottom part takes more effort so I notice I leave it more empty. I need to add more screws in my wall so I can hang the painting higher up. Today I bought 5 months supply of paper towels. These have a new pattern on them that leaves a kind of grid mark when I press it in the paint. Kind of fun.
