So, after last week's post on my unsuccessful rainy window painting, I did sort of end up regretting my haste in painting over it. Maybe next time I'll set it aside for a while before throwing the head up and wiping it out of existence!
In my world this week, I am very excited that season two of Work of Art:Next Great Artist is starting on Sky Arts. Its on at 8am which is weird but that's the joy of Sky+ and bring able to record it! I was so pleased that Abdi won in the first season; he was definitely the best artist and the nicest person, in my humble opinion. I've had it on good authority from Carol over at Carol King, Painting, Drawing, Complaining that season two has even more extreme characters that will have me shouting at the TV so am looking forward to that!
Also this week we've got two more music concerts lined up. The first is Brit Floyd, a Pink Floyd tribute band. S is a huge Pink Floyd fan and has seen both the real band and various tribute bands over the years. I've tried really hard to like them but other than a few of their slower songs, I just think their music is too weird. Anyhoo, for our anniversary last year, I thought it would be romantic to get S tickets for this Brit Floyd concert and for me to go with him, as a couple, with me sharing in his passion for the music. A girl at work suggested bringing my Ipod and listening to something else while the band is playing!
Then we're going to see Train on Monday night. That, I'm hugely excited about as we have all their albums and I think they're amazing even though they don't seem to have made it as big in the UK as they should've. Without exception everyone I've told about going to see them has said "who?"
Anyway, art. So this is the painting I did over the top of the rainy window. This was a photo I took inside a wee vegan cafe in Krakow. It wasn't rain so much as condensation and actual ice on the inside of the window but I liked how we could see the old fashioned street lamp through the condensation. I think it's finished but I'll leave it for a week or two before I glaze it in case I decide to tweak a bit more.

I'm linking to Paint Party Friday and love the new section of interviews with different artists each week. It's so interesting to hear everyone's back story.
