Today is Sketchfest and I Have Painted

My porch. Well, part of it. You see, earlier in the season I scraped off an area of the porch that's more exposed to the weather than the rest and took the tail end of some oil primer and painted it. That, of course, left an unsightly white stain on the purple porch.

But life has been busy, with unpredicted time sinks and distractions. So early this week, we had a bit of snow with my unsightly porch paint job still in evidence. So, while watching Bones (now unaccountably a Friday night show) I looked at the weekend weather -- rain. Oh, goodie. So I went out to paint the porch purple in the dark, with just one electric light (if you don't count distant street lights) to guide me. Then I came in and started this post, but was too tired to finish.

I slept a looooong time,

Now it's raining, and I'm hoping the paint dried before the rain started!!!

But somehow I'm not convinced that returning my purple porch to its proper purple counts as a "sketch".

Ever the sematiicist,
I'd be willing to consider this a sketchy post,
and hope that's close enough...

LOL!

Sadly, the rain has washed the new paint away. *sigh* It must have come in much earlier than expected.

Sorry to see that your hard work was washed away. I had been thinking you could claim it as an abstract mural. Something like: Grapes on Royal Velvet cape. Ala "Polar Bear in Blizzard", dontcha know?

Stacy's Etch A Sketch is amazing, if a little scary.

It wasn't that hard, but still, I hate wasted effort. Oh, well, life is like that sometimes.
