ATC Blue Leaf
I was working on the above ATC yesterday when the earthquake near Ottawa occurred. Although I am a five hour drive away from Ottawa, I still felt the aftershock, or rather I should say, I heard it. Both of the drop leaves on the large table where my TV sits, started flapping and making a clattery noise. This lasted about thirty seconds.
I thought it was the vibration from the large truck that had just delivered a dumpster next door. (My neighbour is having her house re-roofed and needs the dumpster to dispose of the old shingles, in case you wondered). It wasn't until a bit later when I tuned in to catch one of the FIFA World Cup games that I saw the earthquake news bulletin flash across the bottom of the TV screen.
As if that wasn't enough from Mother Nature, later in the evening we also received tornado and storm warnings. Fortunately, we only ended up with periods of heavy rains. Today is bright and sunny.
Back to the ATC. I wanted to do a little experiment with acrylic paint on fabric before tackling it on a larger scale. I like the result so I will be playing around with this paint and fabric theme for a while - in between making cats, of course.
