I'm going where the weather suits my clothes...

(my wine box offering for this year...)

 I have found myself today with an empty 'to do list' So I am thinking I might do a whole lot of nothing today... and considering we are due for a big storm to hit it is probably a pretty good idea.  But we probably wont get any interesting weather as it usually peters out before it hits us.

I have finished my wine box for this years auction... I had a few chemical reactions that exploded on the surface which added an interesting dimension. It is titled "I'm going where the weather suits my clothes" will let you know how much it goes for in the auction.

Something else I have been thinking of doing is a big abstract canvas painting for myself, really big like 1m x .5m (that is big for me).  It will be like a big huge experiment.  I am thinking that these chemical reactions I have had on the wine box might be interesting to try on the canvas... although it would be good to see if I can control them a little.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately... I just hope all these thoughts will come to fruition.

Hm, I find that some times a period of thinking is necessary to move action to the next level. Perhaps that is what you are doing?

I love your wine box.
I'd be intrigued to see an abstract painting of yours.

Hope you are staying warm!

Maybe don't come to Wellington for a holiday - it's a bit chilly here.

hi, Looove the box, What are you doing to the insides of the wine box? I have a ton of wine boxes and cigar boxes I am painting on but can figure out what to do with the inside except collage them or paint them!
