Easy One Day, Hard The Next
Seems that is how art can be, one day things fall into place, the brush can't do wrong, the colors mix in a brilliant way,the erasing and scraping off of paint and graphite are on purpose not because it looks terrible. I have struggled with this painting, erased, scraped, sanded, added and then repeated the process before mentioned. Actually that is rather fun, one has a feeling of ruining, but then what one is trying to achieve are ruins.
This painting is 6X11 approximate. I also used photos of antique buttons for the design around the head and her neck it was all the same button, I had two photos.
It could be that I am just giddy about driving, being done with supervised therapy, and doing pretty well. Nine weeks since I broke my leg, even for me time has vanished quickly. All aspects are not back to normal, a lot are, the leg is still weak, I walk with the cane yet. I still have to go to the gymn for exercise and one should do that anyway, these are strengthening exercises, not cardio.
Thank you for coming by and your well wishes, helps the day and the recovery.
