I will have to contemplate the meaning of the table and chairs, the implied meal being shared and the crisp white with very dark, darks. I increased the depth of color in this copy. I wanted the white to be center most. The bowls. I know this is an important image as I have chosen it twice now.
Those who have read and seen my drawings, know I am drawn (ha ha) to chairs, bowls and pears. I also like the simplicity of black and white with some earthy color. Here it's brown. I want to sit down, with someone I like, and eat a warm bowl of something, drink red wine and laugh. I want to be happy at this table.
My day at work went slowly and then zoomed to it's conclusion 30 minutes past my scheduled departure time. Lunch does that. I have often wondered if the day would go by quicker if I ate my lunch at 10:30?
The weather here in Maine is reminiscent of Spring. Not November. We were 4 degrees short of the record high for yesterday. They said if there had been more sun, we would have hit 70. Easily. The greenhouse was warmish but because of Atkins, I am always cold. Riley is wondering about his walk. Yes, he did have a busy day at doggie daycare. But I have started taking him for his walk at this time of day. Now he expects it. Tomorrow, we will dig a hole and plant the Rhodie that I purchased at the Spring Open House. And I will finally plant my tulips. Yes, I will.
