Ok, so this was my first week of daily painting and as you can see, I went a little wild.
Lastly, this goodie is from a photo by David Gillette. I can't find the finished product. There was a lot more scraping of paint in the foreground, and in the end it kind of overshadowed the barn, but I'm a sucker for paint scraping:)
More gessobord, from photo by Joe VanDeGraff. Did I mention I love paint scraping?
Ok, I guess I lied, I painted two barn pieces this week! Whew From another photo by David Gillette. This is the one where the scraping got a little out of hand:)
Lessons from this week: I gave waaaay too much time, attention, and thought to art, and not nearly enough to the really important things (6 of them) in my life. I feel torn because I am expecting a shipment of Pebeo paints uhm, tomorrow (might have been over nighted in a manic rush of artistic enthusiasm). I am so excited to be working again and I know about local and online galleries and shows, I may or may not have temporarily opened and etsy shop again....but maybe this is my season to keep drawing coloring books for the two at home and sketching when I can. I love the idea of doing some kind of art each day, but I hate dragging kids to the graphics shop and then the shipping shop (they're especially lovely by that point), and then checking my phone all of the time. I really didn't get attatched to many of these pieces, I didn't have time to consider titles and this post has literally taken me an hour because I'm just THAT good with technology. Maybe in six more years it will be my season to really get into marketing and such (because my life will have slowed waaaay down by then right?:), "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
