Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’, Miss Toni

Well, usually I’m baking up a storm or cooking massive quantities of something or other. Last night, I decided to do a little painting. I didn’t go up to my studio/”crap” room until 11 pm or so. By the time I finished playing around with my projects, it was close to 1:30am. That’s just me. I’m a night 🦉 owl.

My friend and neighbor, Allison, had shown me a huge tall clear glass cylinder that she was going to turn into a bird bath or some such yard decoration the other day. I said, “Wow! That would be so cool painted with flowers.” I can’t look at clear glass without envisioning it painted. I love glass. She was just going to fill it with pebbles and things, so I offered to paint it if she liked.

She sent me a photo of a blue flowered dinner plate that she thought made a nice design, so I played around with the colors and flowers on a much smaller glass vase that I had, just to see how it might look. This is my prototype. I think it turned out pretty well. I haven’t shown her yet. Hope it works.

When I was finished, and as not to waste perfectly good glass paint, I painted a couple of 4×4 projects that I needed to work on.

So, that’s what I do in the wee hours of the night/morning.
