Friends, I’ve had a terrible cold that has been winning the battle the last couple days. I decided to look through some older pieces to find some inspiration while I sip my tea and wipe my nose. This piece came up, and I just had to repost it. I love this one. I love the color palette, the bold shape, and yet there is a quietness to this piece that makes me want to stay a while. Thanks for walking down memory lane with me, now back to the tissue box for me.
Some days paintings flow without much effort and I love all that I’m creating. The last couple weeks have not been like that. They have been very hard. I’ve struggled to push through on a few pieces that I just don’t want to be done. This piece has been at least 3 different paintings so far. The creative process can be so exciting and so exhausting all at the same time. While I’m feeling frustrated, I will keep trying!! Always!! There is just no other way.
I have this wonderful friend, Jeanne @jlbartist , who is a brilliant artist, teacher, and friend. She said “What if your paintings tell you everything you need to know about yourself?” I’m personally going thru a hard time right now, so you can imagine that I might paint a dark, moody piece, but yesterday I painted this and it surprised me. So if what Jeanne says is true, then this actually gives me the hope I am looking for in this moment. The sun sets, but it never leaves. #theyellowest
