We ran errands today. I needed two picture frames for the horse pictures. I am hoping to finish them this weekend. We also needed some spices which I find best and least expensive to buy in bulk from the health food store. And we needed groceries and a few other items from Meijers. A nice trip. The Bearded One even drove at the speed limit! Woohoo!
For dinner, we had Eggplant Parmesan. A repeat recipe. Delicious and healthy. We had to buy the eggplant instead of harvesting it from the garden. I had planned on fixing it last week but eggplant at the local market was over $4 for one eggplant! Yikes! Today, I got one for $1.50 from Meijers. Better.
I am beginning to work on the background of the horse pictures. I am experiencing a bit of trepidation here. I have researched a new technique using shreds of colored pencil blurred into the background but am concerned that this may ruin the work I have done so far. So, I am using old techniques. Here are my first layers of color in the background.
