Private Journal Entry #3
by Steve Mitchell
Date Night! Lucie and I are going to Durant’s for dinner tonight. I love our date nights. The boys are old enough we can go out whenever our old-people bedtimes allow!
Lucie won a 100 dollar gift certificate to Durant’s in a limerick contest back in March. I entered too, but didn’t win. Did it sting my ego a little? Yeah, words are kind of my bag. Was I upset or angry? Not at all. She did it! 100 dollars!
I’m nearly finished with R’s painting, btw. I like it quite a lot. It didn’t fight me at all yesterday. I thought I was pretty much done, but I asked Lucie for feedback and she had an issue with her eyes being pulled to the top of the painting. The top is a bit more detailed than the rest. I don’t have the same issue. My eyes go straight to the middle, but I agree, there needs to be more balance, pulling the eyes back down. I’ve got an idea how to proceed. I can tighten up part of the painting some. It’s not daunting *knock knock knock on wood*
Oh, well, I’ve got to go pick up Mr. Alec.
See you Later, Diary
