...to borrow my copy of Joy Kogawa's Obasan showed up in my inbox. I was taking a short break from painting at the time, so I grabbed the book off the shelf and rattled off a quick reply saying yes. However, I neglected to look inside the book before I replied to see what state I'd left it in. Luckily I was in my blue phase when I read it. Key passages are highlighted in a screaming peacock blue, but the majority of arrows, brackets and underlines are just pencilled in. I hope it won't be too distracting. Joy Kogawa will be one of the presenters at Talking Fresh 5 in Regina in March.
Things went well in the studio today. H was right. The painting wasn't as hopeless as I'd thought. I suspect my sweet tooth was behind all the trouble I was having with it yesterday.
After I was done painting, I came into my office and hauled all the books out of the bookcases. They're currently piled knee-deep in the living room. Then H hauled out the bookcases to ready the walls for a fresh coat of paint.
