little blue dog

only half broken-hearted

Allergy season for me has been heralded in recent years with the watering of one eye (never both), usually for about an hour or so in the evenings and mornings. Today, and for the past week, it's been my right one.

Currently I'm sitting in my office waiting for it to clear up so that I can go get some coffee without anyone thinking I've been sobbing with only half my face.

tonight ...

... I painted a wall.


Detail:


The doorway leads from my dining room to the kitchen. The wall used to be a gleaming, minty green, then I primed it, put on a thick layer of texture paint and shaped it, and applied a base coat of beige. Tonight I finished this wall with a russet mixed with satin glaze. It took about three hours.

I think I like it, but I'm not sure.
