The Revenge of the Sweetpeas
Again - sorry - it's still not "right" to me. I will try one more time with just a pale to medium wash of color behind the flowers and see if that makes me happy. If it doesn't, then the Sweetpeas have won!
I am trying to adjust to my new glasses and I think they are just a bit off - I can see for miles, it seems, in the regular part but in the bifocal part it seems off somehow - not clean and crisp and almost like looking through a blurry magnifying glass. And walking around is like being on a ship that's hoving to and fro at sea! ha ha I'm giving myself this weekend to adjust and if I don't, it's back to get some adjustments.
I would share a photo but these are so close in look to the previous pair (rimless at the bottom and a gunmetal grey at the top) that you wouldn't know the difference - except the prescription is even stronger and I probably look like an owl! It may be time for lasix :( No lovely fashion-wise glasses like Joan for me - just something to do the job and not make me look like a doob at the same time.
And so you won't run screaming from another attempt at a stupid silly sweetpea painting - here's my latest Moley Doodle:
This one has the look of birds and baskets, to me.
