I've been working on a variety of different paintings. But this monochromatic style keeps calling me. And as it gets closer to the holidays it will be difficult not to post those that I'm working on as gifts! This one was intended to be a gift for my daughter, but she kindly agreed to allow me to post it. It was done from a photo taken at her wedding -- is it seven years already??? Can't be... how time flies!
I'm re-visiting The Artist's Way, a book about bringing out your best creative self. It's not just for artists. The foreward explains that all professions have used this program to help make their lives more creative and enjoyable. This is the third time I'm attempting to get through it. Right up front it says that most people quit about half way through due to frustration, anger, or lack of feeling fulfilled by it. I'm much more motivated to complete the program this time. Maybe the third time's a charm?
