My first post of the new year... which would've been posted yesterday had I not been sick with fever. I'm completely out of my head when I have a fever :) There's no telling what I may have typed. What a way to bring in a new year!
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and send me notes of encouragement. I do appreciate it very much.
I'm currently working on a series of paintings such as these... I'm calling them "studies" for larger paintings. I have purchased some huge (to me) canvases... 24 x 30, 30 x 30 and 30 x 40... but before I dive into painting, I want to paint smaller to see how I like the subject over a period of time.
I once read an interview of a songwriter and they asked him what was his favorite song he'd ever written. His answer was, "The last one." I get caught up in that sometimes with my paintings. But after the newness has worn off, sometimes I don't like it as much as I did right when I finished it.
This painting, however, I'm liking more and more each day... and I'm thinking I may tackle painting it larger.
Happy 2012 to all my blog readers.... blessings and best wishes for your best year yet :)
