Had a quiet day today. Fed the birds, washed feeders. Then the rain and thunder storm came so flopped on my bed with a book and before I knew it, I was peacefully snoring! I love vacation!

Thought I’d give acrylics a go for today’s painting. It’s been at least a year, maybe even two since I last painted with acrylics. I’ve been using watercolours daily since January. Had a go with oils for 8 or 9 classes. But acrylics have been my medium since I started painting when I was eight or so years old.

I worked on a 5″X5″ canvas. Maybe a little small to start. I found it challenging and forgot, or lost, my technique! Didn’t see that coming. Not to mention working on canvas after painting 178 paintings on watercolour paper…it’s different.

I wanted to capture my favourite summer night sky. Right around the solstice, the sky looks similar to this about 9-9:30 pm.

I started a painting for someone special. It’s on 16″x20″ canvas. I painted the background tonight – after the painting of the day – and am thrilled that it’s all coming back to me! Practice!

Tonight’s photo of the day is the stormy sky over my backyard.
