Fortuitous that our Leisure Isle run coincided with the Comrades Marathon Legends virtual route. Which meant we had runners and spectators cheering us along.
While my Comrades Marathon run was some 25 years ago, it’s 90km camaraderie, still remarkable.
Large canvases arrived. The Cheetah Cubs painting the immediate excitement. However, the painting of the kids in Khartoum, needing attention.
The rich colours of Cyan. Apparently, Michelangelo, his first painting “The Holy Family” when he was 28 years old used three colors, Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta. The cyan could have been Azurite, Blue Vitriol or Pompeian Blue Lake, a Ferris-cyan, Indigo, or Bremen Blue or a native Cobalt Blue that had a cyan color. It wasn’t Ultramarine Blue.
A storm has swept in, which with a touch of red wine and a fire casting it’s warmth and comfort, a nostalgic, normal. Baked Brie, wrapped in Pancetta, extra special.
Slow progress on my painting with live testing of the painting demonstrations, from the studio, for the Virtual Knysna Oyster Festival.
Probably a tad extreme, with the half-marathon route and Homtini Pass rides, bookending longer than normal running, sending my blood-sugars bouncing off the limits.
