I just picked up a painting of mine
at my former painting teacher
“Le Rêve” – base painting in oil on wood
It’s much better than I remember.
And I can’t wait to finish it. 
So, if I find a speck of time this week…
But this afternoon there’s something else that needs painting:
My “middle-ages” pair of shoes…to match a new outfit!
 Now you see them sand…they will be black!
So, on to the chemicals it is!
First there’s the steam-cleaning part.
Then the chemical decoloration
And then finally the black paint.
A lot of work.
But I’m looking forward to it. 
A nice mindless little chore
that allows plenty of time to listen to an audio book!
