My granddaughter and I had a lovely day today, doing whatever we pleased, which included watching an old Scooby Doo episode on YouTube, painting gesso on some pages we never got around to decorating, some serious wrestling (the child is fearsome and funny), a bit of doll dress-up (I just know that one day I won't think of them as Barfies anymore), a browse through a rummage sale, which scored us a virtually brand-new Hello Kitty sleeping bag, all pink and white fake fur and satin, and lunch with her Mama. We also did a bit of a meander through town, looking for interesting fences. We found a couple, which I photographed from my seat in the car, since it was cold, and pouring rain.

Here they are:

As usual, I've played with my filters on several of these; clicking on them will give you the full effect. The last one, I just cropped down. I don't know what it is about that one; I find it oddly satisfying, with its subtle colors and strata.

On a completely different note, I decided Wednesday that I was just not ever going to have the time to paint my kitchen floor all at one time, and also that there was no good reason it couldn't be polka dotted. I like polka dots, and the vinyl floor I have now is clearly going to outlast Planet Earth, since its black-and-gray-splattered-on-white self has been in that room at least forty years now. So I'm painting a dot or two a day, in an assortment of colors and sizes. Film at 11, as they say.

I like the fence with the broken tops! Gets me wondering who (or what) was climbing over the break them! Hope to see some progression photos of the polka dots!
