I spent a year, a few years ago painting almost nothing but tulips...and did some pieces like this in oil (which take forever to dry)..and some pieces in watercolor....this is an acrylic version, and I played with colors today,mixing everything so that nothing was straight from the tube...except, of course, the black outlining, which was originally done in purple, but it was completely lost once I filled the flowers and leaves in and added the palette knife work, so I had to then go over the purple in black and re work some things.It was a fun piece to do..I wanted to be outside, and my "poured" paintings are done inside over the concrete floor.

4:21 p.m. For the club 47 followers.....I had coffee st 10:30.....a bowl of light soup at 2:30 and have had two 45 calorie popsicles...and 2 glasses of iced tea....NOT's too hot to eat....but ice cream sure sounds good!!!!!!Hmmmmm...I will have to think a little more about that!!! Will wait until about 8:30 to walk when it cools off a bit...gonna go paint some more!!

10:53 p.m. DID not WALK!!!!!! Painted until 7:00, then Hubby & I decided to grill steaks...then friends came over at 9:00 for games.....I has 3 ounces of steak, with mushrooms and a medium sized salad with lettuce , avocado, grape tomatoes, and poppyseed dressing....for dinner. Not bad...and still a lot of steak left for tomorrow!!!

Had a 4 oz skinny margarita and a piece of a pudding/fruit tart pie looking thing...VERY yummy but 350 calories...YIKES!!!!!

Considering it was technically a HOLIDAY..I'd say I did pretty well in total calories, carbs.....BUT...have put myself in the position of needing 60 min of cardio Tuesday and Wednesday ...Yikes again....hope you all had a wonderful 4th!!!!!!
Did not quite finish tomorrow's Club 47 painting will have to finish it in the morning and then post .....
