I've been surviving on my digital art software since late August, ever since the main level of the house was transformed into a state of post-apocalyptic confusion.  I'm hoping that as soon as our kitchen remodel is done I'll again have enough space to do some "real" painting...

The kitchen transforms...very slowly.

22 October 2015.  Since we last left off in the chronicle of the kitchen remodel, the walls are painted.  Tile, cabinets, and appliances will cover up the still unpainted areas.
22 October 2015.  The sliding patio door is replaced with French doors.
23 October 2015.  View of French doors from solarium.
24 October 2015.  I thought this looked rather like an abstract painting.  It's a convergence of the old wall paint, primer, and the new paint.
26 October 2015.  Cabinets going in.
27 October 2015.  Future kitchen sink to the right.
27 October 2015.  Cabinet doors and drawers are removed so everything can be painted.
31 October 2015.
2 November 2015.  Cabinet painting is more-or-less done and doors and drawers put back on.
3 November 2015.
6 November 2015.  We still have the microwave from the original kitchen, temporarily housed in the un-live-able living room.  Nigel endures.
I now think it's likely, probable, even, that our home remodel will still be in progress some time into 2016.

I recommend not buying a home that needs a lot of remodeling unless you like to expect the unexpected and don't mind paying extra for it.:P

A Room with a View

This was a view from one of our skylights not long ago, looking up from the bed.

19 October 2015.  Nigel takes his slipper out for a walk.
20 October 2015
Nigel likes to take my dad's house slippers whenever we're visiting, and recently my dad gave him one of his old slippers.  Nigel treasured it.  Of course, he eventually tore it to shreds.
