Painting begins

The painter started work yesterday. He removed the trims to start and just look how different the coĺour of the wood is where the sun did not get to it.
That's only in about 10 days!
Base coat done and a start on the "bundled sage" walls.

IW 14 She is made of star stuff!

Number 14 at Inspiration Wednesday.
One of the prompts was to use something that made you laugh out loud!
I, on the other hand, decided to use a more reflective perspective!! lol

I used my own hand drawn image that I have digitised so that I can print it out anytime I like at whatever size and any colour too.....such a boon when you are short of time ;)

I made my own quote bubbles "She is made of star stuff"...
...a misquote on my part from the wonderful Carl sadly missed on this planet but hopefully, somehow, still discovering the wonders of the universe :)

I've used my lovely antique typewriter for the first time in my art on the front of the inclusion :)

and again for "Gaia"
I deliberately left the number 14 uncoloured to stand out more.

Love the colours melding into each other.....teal, orange, quindachridone gold.

Back of inclusion.

Thanks for looking.....I did have fun with this.

Chalet day five

Day five.
The shingle roofing felt was added.

We are loving this extra room.

Still very much a work in progress...electric & water supply to connect, step to add and outside to have a protective coat.....I'm thinking Bundled Sage! ROFL

...we are going to have such happy times out here.

Thanks for looking.
