4 x 4 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
Sold - Thank you
Every now and then, I get humbled at the easel. Like all artists, I have a love-hate relationship with it. This painting was inspired by a recent trip to the doctors. I've seen these shacks many times and each time I say: "I need to pull over and get a picture" followed by, "I'll do it next time." Sound familiar? Well yesterday, I pulled over and got the picture.
When I got home, I was very excited to begin painting. The Easy-Peasey, this will be a piece of cake attitude was as thick as cigar smoke. I started out very worthy of my swelled head, but believe me, it went downhill.
It's amazing how quickly I can turn on myself. It started by reminding myself how much housework I have, before I took my next breath, I reasoned that I could have made a nice dessert, cleaned the house, changed the oil in my car and put on a new roof on the house. I walked out of the studio convinced I couldn't draw a stick figure. But,
This isn't my first match with the easel. So although I didn't cut my losses soon enough, I did leave the studio knowing that I could start over today. I posted pictures on facebook
