Day 53: Staple Cat

Today I decided to follow the challenge to make something with staples, or with a stapler.  I actually found this to be really fun and quick. It’s not perfect, but it feels really cool.  It’s heavy, almost like metal stitches in the paper or a flexible metal fabric.  And I liked the back side, too.And yesterday I put gesso on a bristol board to prep for playing with paints.And then I put gesso on our floor – oops!!! I actually thought about smearing it around or dripping more to make a cat on the floor – this is how “infected” my brain is with this challenge! LOL! But really, I needed to clean it up before it dried.They today I cut up the board into smaller pieces and started working on some of the exercises in my library book, “Color is Everything.” I used oil paints today. And today’s lesson is that I need better ventilation in the future! LOL! I only had time to fuss with the paint for about 30 minutes, but it’s a start.  And I’m out here showing y’all what a noob I am at painting!

LOVE the colors.  This photo with the flash makes me want daylight bulbs to paint with. Our CFL’s may (or may not) be saving the planet, but I can’t see my paint colors well with them, darn it!

    Very cool. I can imagine what it feels like to lift it and move it around. Really terrific.
