Gloria J Zucaro's "South of Tucson"

A week of some things not pertaining directly to art endeavors.  My very small laundry room is about 5 feet 6 inches by 6 feet and had three doors entering into it. One came in from the garage. The one opposite that led from the laundry room into the dining room. On the wall opposite the washer and dryer was the door going down to the basement. If the garage door and dining room doors were open they almost touched in front of the two machines and with the basement door open it overlapped the entry into the dining room.  Before Christmas I had the basement door removed and a pocket door installed in its' place.  This week I had the dining room door removed and a solid wood barn door put on the inside of the dining room wall to cover that doorway when needed or to remain open for easy access to the basement or garage.  The reason I had asked for a solid wood door is because the door and the track will be painted to match the dining room wall color and it is now suitable to hang a painting on, whether opened or closed. Yea!  

My painting this week has also been "updated".  I put in the foreground and subtracted two automobiles!  Formerly the bottom quarter of the page was a dark shadow blue color...too much uninteresting blue.  It was supposed to show that I was standing on the edge of a two lane highway separated by some desert space which is what was in my photograph.  I must learn not to be so literal!

I am linking with Paint Party Friday. You will be inspired by the art from all over the world that was created this week.

If you are on Facebook, I also have a page called Gloria J Zucaro Artwork in Pen & Ink.  I post there occasionally. Have a great week.~gloria
