'Mine is the Morning'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard
Six daily paintings in a row.
Don't expect to hear from me over the weekend. ;)
I'm not giving up on the '30 in 30' challenge, just taking a break.
Kudos to all of you that are trucking on through.
When I paint this frequently, I sorta get more and more critical of each piece; - I start to think, "Oh, the next one will be better, the next one I'll be so much faster!" (I prefer to think of it not as overly critical; instead, I'm an eternal optimist!)
Anyway, in trying to achieve 'better', I then choose more difficult reference photos as the week goes on, and pretty soon I'm spending every free moment of the day on one painting!
(You can imagine what my house looks like right now.)
Sheesh. Gotta chill out. :)
Back to the painting: This morning scene was captured last fall, just around the corner from our house. One of many mornings that I rushed back to the house to get the camera after dropping off my son at school.
Thanks for sticking with me this week - I gotta go order a pizza to feed my family. :)
