Happy New Year...well, this new year it already flying by as it is the 11th of January. I've been trying to play catch up with work and painting. My studio mate and I have a show next September and I want to get several of the self-portraits done. I've got them drawn but have been very hesitant to apply paint. But this week I decided to conquer the fear and just do it. So far I am please with the beginning of block-in on this one. Skin color is so tricky!
I did finish this one of Moss Mountain Farm. I've painted it before in a very small version and it sold very quickly but I wanted to paint it bigger. I'm happy with it.
On a quick note this Saturday morning...BRRRRR...winter has blown in and of course our furnace is on the fritz. Of course my do-it-yourself hubby is not inclined to call anyone but wants to tackle it himself. Righhhhht...I'm cold and thank goodness most of the day I will be moving and grooving with straightening up the guest bedrooms from our company and dismantling Christmas and stowing it away, so I may even break a sweat. Lots of blankets this evening and I should survive. My parakeet on the other hand I will move to the bedroom area where we have a split system to keep him warm.
Sad note is that The Hubby lost two cousins yesterday. They had both been battling cancer.
