Remodeling With Noodles: Daily Art Practice
Along with a busy schedule, we have just started a very large remodel in our house. We are starting with the Master Bedroom and moving through the top floor of our house, painting and flooring. It will be a very large job, but my talented husband has taken on the task of doing all the work himself. I don’t help much but I try to be helpful in whatever way I can. It has been a while since we remodeled, and I forgot how annoying the process can be. Our house is displaced with furniture moved to various rooms and it feels like we are living in a much smaller space that is never clean.
This is a picture before we painted. My husband got a paint sprayer, and it made the task of painting a large room much faster. Our only complaint was the amount of overspray and we spent some time scrubbing paint off doorknobs and molding. Next time I we will be covering things more thoroughly but the time saved was definitely worth it.
Daily Art Practice
My shopfront today is Karonouron, Udon Restaurant, which sells noodles, in Hakata, Fukuoka. You can find my reference photo HERE. I inked the building and then finished in watercolor. I loved the window display of dishes that the restaurant offers. Apparently, fake food, made from wax and plastic, is popular in Japan and many restaurants use it to advertise what they offer.
I am joining the Tea Day Ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Pineapple Blues. I am working through this sample pack that I forgot I had until recently.
Happy Tea Day,
