I’ve done a bit more work on the painting I started yesterday morning. I’ve been learning so much lately, and all the long days of art studies and dutiful practice are finally beginning to pay off, I think. I can see improvements in my painting. I hope you can, too.
I will be adding additional details to this painting, but here it is today.
The painting process is becoming easier for me, but in many ways painting is far from easy. I’m struggling with my cramped-up little corner of the kitchen. My husband has a few projects of his own taking up the table now, so it’s all quite a mess — and quite a challenge. I had to mix my colors in another corner of the kitchen and carry my palette back to the easel. My brush cleaner and thinner is on the floor, and I managed to knock over a jar filled with brushes.
I won’t embarrass myself by showing you my “studio” — but you can get a slight glimpse of it here. I have a small “TV tray” placed beneath the easel. That’s where I set a few supplies. Usually I can place my palette on the table where it’s close at hand. Today it was precariously balanced on another tray, along with other art supplies.
Oh, to be a famous artist and have a spacious studio! Art, of course, is like everything else. We do the best we can with what we’ve got.
Overall, I’m happy with the progress I’ve been making, and I’m looking forward to showing more of my paintings. I’m also determined to find some way to organize the mess just a bit. But not today. It’s a day of rest, and we’re going to enjoy our beautiful Sunday.
