6" x 6"
I painted this small version of a pond last week when longing for a cool break from the heat and having little time for painting. I'd like to paint this again in a larger format at some point - but for now, I"m considering this an exercise in methods ....
It's so funny how our moods and time allowances play into our artwork .... I suppose like anything else, we are all affected by events and emotions at the time we pick up our brushes. I'm finding these days that after a long day at work and after the high heat and humidity of the day, my energy stores are about depleted, and my paintings that night aren't as relaxed and energetic as they are when done over the weekend when leisure time is more available. Do you find that too?
At any rate, work nights will have to be practice for the most part - something to keep the brushes wet and the ideas flowing .....
How about you?
