I painted this one the day we were leaving for MN. The new challenge had popped up on the Daily Paint Works website and I just had to try it, get one last painting in before I knew I wouldn’t be able to paint for a week. (It’s hard getting back in the habit though.) Candle light was definitely a challenge, but I just broke it all down into shapes and went for it. I think painting is all about changing the way you SEE things. It can be intimidating approaching a new blank canvas, but really looking at your subject and breaking it down into shapes makes it a bit less scary.
On another note; WE BUY A HOUSE TODAY! So I’ll probably by over there all day starting projects. I might be able to paint tonight, but if not, hopefully tomorrow after work. I could see the house being so exciting and my mind filling up with things to do over there, but I’ll try really hard to stay in the studio too.
