And the Lord said let there be light - so we set our clocks forward...........................
The thing I hate the most about winter - without a doubt - is that you wake up to darkness - and it's dark by supper time ( sometimes way earlier because we tend to eat late - we're very European like that, don't you know )
Add that to the fact that I live in a dark house and wow - I end up feeling a bit vampire - like.
Anyway, clocks get forwarded this weekend - and we go from dark to light -
Much like this coffee table
I painted the base in ASCP Pure white - and there was a bit of a technique for the top -
I first painted it with a coat of Paris Grey - and did a " wash " of the white and grey - and then
for finish I dry brushed some white all over - the effect is almost " ocean " like - which the camera doesn't seem to capture all that well - this seems to be the best shot I can get of the layers..........it really does pop against the white legs................
and when you add light - flowers start blossoming
and birds magically appear
and pretty soon winter becomes a small distant memory
and Spring becomes bigger than life
and you start feeling like there really is " nothing but blue skies "
Hope you have a little " spring " in your walk this weekend!
Much love and light to you all,
