Power outage lends itself to another day painting
We had another power outage (due to winds knocking over a huge arbutus tree on Village Bay road at 1:40 am). I awake at 7:00 am. The power is still out. I decide to see if I can find a coffee before doing anything else. Ah yes! The bakery is serving coffee using generator power. Armed with to-go thermos cups filled with black gold, I return home and prepare our usual fruit, yogurt and grain cereal for breakfast. With few alternatives, I settle on my favourite activity of the moment – painting.
The wild underpainting had dried on my 18X24 by 2 inch canvas.
I go to work. At one o’clock this afternoon the power comes on again and I am ready to take a break and share the progress with you.
There is more to do but it is a good start.
Sprout Question: What is your creative activity of choice when the power goes out?
Note: My apologies for being late with today’s post but you will have to take it up with the wind and the arbutus tree… they have let me know they are taking full responsibility for the delay.
