A Song Written Just for Her - Part 4

It's not easy being green.

So today I eradicated a bit of green in my life.

I've had these kelly green skinny jeans for a couple of years. I've worn them three times. Once around the holidays. That worked just fine. You know, festive and all. The second time was when I was in a Miracle Whip commercial and I was one of the "State College" fans wearing green. That worked great, too. The third time was last week when I wore them to work. Well, by golly, those pants are REALLY green!

So I picked up some brown fabric dye last night and today I died 'em. It didn't exactly go as I'd planned. They're more of a deep olive green than a brown and the stitching, which was apparently not cotton and therefore nonabsorbent, remained bright green. But I rather like them and I'm going to go with "I meant for them to turn out like that." Yup!

And I continued working on this painting. I had a really busy day and honestly didn't get much done on it. But I did spend a nice amount of time with my mom and I was able to do a lot of work on a secret commissioned piece. So I'm happy.

I added red centers to all of the
flowers I'd painted last night.
I sketched the figures with pencil (it may be
too light to see in this photo).

I went over the pencil with white paint.
