I'm Cookin' Here

And when I say cookin', I'm not referring to doing anything in the kitchen or getting a lot of artsy stuff done. I'm literally cookin'. It's been in the 100's for the last 2 weeks. Okay, maybe not that long, but it sure feels like it. I think were on about the 4th or 5th day of this heat. But, Mr. Radio Weatherman keeps telling me that by tomorrow we're going to be back down into the 80's. Ha! I'll believe that when I feel it.

Here's what I worked on today. If you remember a few posts back, I had bought some abandoned board books from the local thrift store. Over the course of a few days or so, I've been applying gesso to all the pages in the books. Well I finally got some of them all gesso'd up and they are ready for further work. So I painted backgrounds on the outside of a couple books. And on one I added some flowers.
