I got some good starts and maybe a finish yesterday. The top painting I set up like a plein air painting – trying to catch the changing shadows on oranges sitting by a North-Western window as the sun was setting. Frantic painting and then…. the sun was gone. I really like the colors.
The lower painting is “Peeling”. This one really kicked my butt. It went through a lot of changes. It felt really good to do, though. I’m getting back into the rhythm of painting daily and am starting to think about painting all the time – which for me is one of the biggest benefits of painting daily.
BUT, I am so INSPIRED! I realized yesterday what I want to make my next many small paintings about. I can’t write it down or my steam will disappear. But I’ve already started my next painting. I’m in that head-place where I could spend 40 hours strait in the studio, and I love it. Hope you like where i’m going with my paintings.
