scribal shenanigans


in which our plucky heroine attempts to cheer self up...

At Scribal Night last week, when I saw this appealing new charter design, I immediately wanted to paint it! And contrary to my usual practice, this one simply demanded a somewhat abundant use of metallic paint

The fretted background, and chickadees, reference the heraldry of the current Royalty. The birds are painted metallic silver and black, and I had fun decorating the green border with tiny lotus blossoms and archways.

Once I realised that the background in the side panels also wanted to be metallic golden, the rest of my choices for color and pattern seemed to be much easier; I can use tiny subtle patterns and they still show up well... One of my favorite things to paint is the motifs on their "silk samite" garments.

Ten jars of strawberry/rhubarb sauce now cooling on the countertop ready to put away. A bit further along towards my goal to refill the pantry with food that will get eaten, and to empty the freezer of the stored produce waiting to be processed.
