Shadows, a day of thoughts, unsettled
After having guests be it family or other folks and I have tidied up and gotten things back to my normal at least the physical normal, then you have to take time to get back to the emotional normal which is more difficult. One thoughts ramble this way and that and your inner self has not settled.
I painted this in effort to settle, I knew that physical work such as gardening might settle me more, I was not quite ready to look at what had to be done in the garden, yet unsettled because I knew there weren't many days before the cold and rain would come again. It has been miserable cold, snow, frozen bird bath that sort of thing, not to mention frozen plants. I tackled gardening yesterday, and yes it is miserable cold today.
The background says unsettled yet hard to tell as I must feel that way a lot. I had the painting sitting up and shadows from a water glass fell across the bottom I liked how that looked so stenciled some in. This work is also putting effort into not having wide, long eyes but rounder eyes, my thought is it may change how some of my faces look.
