A Rare Uninterrupted Day

No good news, nor bad news.  No responsibilities to anything other than the studio.  And the cats.  Started with a bike ride to eat breakfast with a friend- for me, this is an energizing way to start the day.  Change clothes and to the studio I go.

First photo of the morning, after doing a little shadow.

I have started a new “stripe” of my mosaic design, and this is the bottom section of it, about 12 inches across.  I worked in the darkest tiles first: eggplant, chocolate, and blue-gray.

All the darkest shadow is filled in now.

More eye-popping orange

Completed section. The uneven top edge should fit into the next panel like a puzzle piece.

The completion of this section represents 7 hours of completely concentrated work.

When I am filling in a design like this, my shapes-and-colors decisions are not too difficult, so I can listen to podcasts.  These give my mind something to mull over, and maybe turn into art one day.

Among others, I listened to this old Snap Judgment program.  Stories are riveting, but LOVE the way the woman tells the story about her autistic son and his cat!
