On Hold (8x8in on canvas panel)
Sometime I ask my husband for help titling these paintings, and he always delivers.
If I was going to take a break from painting at all this week today would have been the day. Sick kiddo, exhausted preggo…but a friend wanted to come watch me paint and this was the only day that worked for her – so I sucked it up. And I’m glad, these Christmas bulbs have been a joy to paint each time, though I did struggle the longest so far today setting up a good composition. I knew I wanted big red front and center, and the polka dots helped fill some negative space.
I actually had an art lesson with another little friend right after I finished this one and we painted just the red bulb together, so I’ll post that tomorrow.
