Well I got the fox painting finished today. I struggled with this one. Sometimes it's like that with a painting. Your mind and your hand just don't communicate the way you want them too. I think it's just because I'm out of practice. There's an easy solution to that start another painting. I was originally going to do another fox right away, but I think now I'll do a hunt scene with hounds. I think I need a break from "Charlie", to my non horse friends Charlie is slang for fox. Besides the board I'm priming for the next painting better suits a hunt scene.
Today I didn't get to the gym. I did get a lot of work done. A load of shavings in the barn and stalls. It feels good to get a load of shavings into the barn. I think it helps keep the barn warm. This winter the barn needs all the help it can get.
Tomorrow I'm taking the commuter bus into Ottawa. That means I'm going to have to get my butt in gear early if I'm going to catch the 7:35am bus into town. John is already in Ottawa he'll pick me up to do some cell phone shopping and have lunch with my Aunt Marge. It's been a long cold winter for everyone. I am very much looking forward to a salad I don't have to make. Marge told me on the phone she's going stir crazy and is just looking forward to lunch outside the retirement home.
