Ever wake up and just feel like painting a particular thing? For some reason yesterday, I really wanted to paint rocks ... go figure. There aren't many large rocks on my property or around me! I hunted for a few reference photos and put several together for this painting. It reminds me of a method and painting I saw in one of Karlyn Holman's DVDs .. but the scene came from several Wet Canvas references and a bit of memory of marsh areas in South Carolina that I love.
Got in a bit more shopping yesterday and finally did a most unusual thing for me -- watched a movie! Sitting still doesn't come easy; somehow I've been born with an innate restlessness (probably from my dad) to keep 'doing.' Yesterday though, with greying skies and chores about completed, I sat for 2 hours and enjoyed a movie ...! Really nice!
It's raining this morning and promises to do so all day and into tomorrow as we return to work. It looks like a quiet day ... who knows -- maybe another movie?!
