She who must be Obeyed ordered a clean up of the man cave!!
|I drew the line at wearing marigolds for fear of developing a fetish|
The clean up and sorting took the best part of 4 hours before I could finally get settled into my comfy new chair. Yes I went out and bought myself a brand new executive chair with a full back and some lumbar support, the difference is huge. I got myself a bargain with the sales still being on I managed to visit Staples and got an £80.00 chair for under £40.00. I have road tested it during the weekend and it is comfortable for a full day sat painting so I am delighted.
Next major purchase will be a triple bright Daylight lamp suggested by fellow blogger Monty a while back, they certainly are not cheap weighing in at £120.00 but it beats working in half light on occasions and should mean I am not painting directly below the bulbs on my smaller daylight lamps as I am currently.
Once I did get to paint today I had to get some serious work done on my entry for the vehicle bonus road, I think I have bitten of a bloody great chunk this time. I wanted to go left field on my entry, and have been working on it for a couple of weeks and have possibly put some 25 hours into it already and I am a long way from anything like finished.
One piece I did get finished was the Druid from the Celtic Legends box set.
The Blog With No Name , whose recent dalliances with role playing characters reminded me of the many hours I used to while away in my youth playing dungeons and dragons with some friends, I always played a magic user of one form or another so this fell firmly in that category for me. So my thanks to Ian for revitalising my mind for this piece.
Well another day draws to a close in the Great Hall, thanks for stopping by.
