Gloomy days slide by as we wait for spring and look through the inventory now completed and helping us prepare for the upcoming art year. The business of the art game is still difficult for us, the act of creating still the most pure and by far the most fun.
Creating art is perspiration and concentration. Some acts of art are pure pleasure, while others are pure hard work often with little positive results.
I wanted to immortalize an anniversary pot of roses. Sounds like an easy painting assignment but nooooo.  After four painting sessions, the dreaded mud. The painting result sits out of sight but watching from the its isolated distant location. On to the next…
Winter, with it blues and purples, set off a wave of energy for me that carried into a really fine “A” painting. So… perspiration, concentration, plus the hidden and often called on perseverance keeps the gloomy days away.
Still waiting for spring and flowers with all their color and textures and dancing in the wind. Please check the website for a look at my work:
Best to you for “A” days,
