29 hours without electricity

Dear bloggers, readers, followers!

I just want to apologize that I didn’t post my weekly posts “Sunday Photo Hunting” and “From ordinary to artistic”, but since yesterday 4pm we were without electricity. 😐
I will post both soon and participate in the challenges I used to.

I need to admit I felt a little frustrated after I woke up today, but this feeling disappeared with the rising sun and my motivation to turn the next few hours without the power to something useful.
Yesterday I cooked the dinner at the candle light and today I fried all the fish filets because it got melted and I wasn’t sure when the power will come back. Well we can enjoy it for the next three days 😄.

Sitting on the stairs, getting some sun I decided to create something nice, so I took the three old pots I found in our backyard and here is the result of playing with the acrylic colours.

teapot with flowers and butterflies


frying pot with dandelions


all three together

I gifted all three pots to our landlord for his flowers ☺ and he liked them a lot.

My husband practiced some chess since he couldn’t work (he is an online English teacher) and after I finished painting the pots, he asked me to teach him how to paint.
I gave him one of my older drawings and told him to start with it.

I think this is coming along very nicely. He didn’t enjoy it for a long time though because it started to get late and the darkness fell again on our house and yard.
He maybe will finish it tomorrow or by the next power outage. ☺
I think he will spend his spare time practicing some more chess instead. 

Blessed night/morning!

    Your paintings are very lovely; I’m a little bit jealous!😉

    • Oh , thanks a lot! ☺ You should maybe try to paint something. Acrylic colours are great for glass, pots, canvas and it is easy to work with them. Maybe you will like it.

  3. Love your pots, your art is such fun.

  4. Good looking pots. Your landlord is a lucky man. Hope he has a green thumb but even if he doesn’t the pots are cheerful on their own.

    • Thanks Patricia! ☺ He loves plants and flowers and the yard is really green. He takes a good care of the yard.
