In Just Ten Minutes...

When it rains it pours!  I took these photos just ten minutes after the rain started!

The back yard on the left side was almost full of water...
The part behind the swing looked like someone was on the roof with a large hose.

I decided that the light was not right for working on close up stuff like wisteria...
I went in the workroom and found a new home for all of my acrylic paints.

I do believe that this system will work.  I used a CD tower and put the paints in so that the bottoms were sticking out.  That way, I can see the colors at a glance.  I still have to do a bit of fine tuning, but I think that it is going to work.

Greens and yellows top shelf.

Blues and turquoise second shelf.

Browns and beige third and fourth shelves.

Whites and creams fifth shelf.

Metallic sixth shelf and large bottles on the bottom. 

Oh!  I forgot the blending mediums on the top. 

At least I know where everything is for the present...

And you are wondering how I am keeping Tessie out of trouble...

I have a secret weapon. 

I set her on big Spike's lap... He doesn't talk or move, but she likes the company.

Now that I am done, I have to go find something else to sort and stow.

Back to work. 

See you tomorrow.

Vaya forma de llover... Me gusta la forma de ordenar las pinturas, a lo mejor te copio.
Un beso

I've enjoyed seeing how you have stored your paints. Looks efficient as well as accessible.
