Does the weather effect your creative inspiration?
No... I'm serious, does it?
Yesterday was a cold and rainy day.
Luckily I had plans for a few of my friends to come by and paint with me!
We painted from 10-12, and then had lunch together.
After everyone had left, I did not return to the studio... I returned TO BED!
It may be that my painting partner had LOTS more energy than me,
but honestly I think it was the rain that made me want to sleep instead of paint!
This morning I woke up before the sun! I found myself in the studio at 5:00AM!
I had this grand idea to start a new 30x30 canvas... But first I had to just finish up a few things on the two paintings I have been working on.
So I added a little more color to this painting and then signed it. Now it was time to start my 3 day long finishing process! Step one, add a layer of acrylic medium.
Now I took out the second painting. I decided that the "sunflowers" were making me hungry... I couldn't decide if they looked like bagels or donuts, either way, they had to go! (see image below)
I then decided to add some wild flowers on the far hill.
FOUR HOURS LATER... I still haven't started my 30x30 canvas!
This second painting is definitely coming along S-L-O-W-L-Y!!!
It has already evolved 3 times too. I do love a good mystery,
but I hope this doesn't turn out to be one of those paintings that torment me!
( you know what I'm talking about!)
Well... I'm taking a short break, but that's it for my blogging adventures for the day!
Have FUN today whatever you decide to do!
