Light Bulb Challenge
6 x 6 inches, Oil on Board
Who would paint a light bulb? I would, especially if it's a challenge designed by Artist, Carol Marine. I've been trying to create a painting on a regular basis as a result of meeting a weekly challenge offered by DPW.
I cannot put into words how bad I felt yesterday as I tried and tried to paint a soft white bulb. I had three scrapers and one start that did not look too promising at the end of my studio day. I just about cried, but instead sipped on a bit of Irish Cream Whiskey. Medicinal purposes!
Today, I decided to not let this get to me. This is the result. Not good enough, but good enough. Only you artists can make sense of that last sentence. It's AKA quit while you're ahead.
I so want to capture color and light better than I am doing now. This will be a goal for me in 2013 and if it gets better before then, I'll have a reason to sip more Irish Cream Whiskey to celebrate.
