Going up - WIP
This is a small color study I did first. I also did a pencil sketch and decided to move the tower a little left (from the photo). It was too centered in the photo. I'm hoping to be able to finish the 16" X 20" painting this week. Then I can go back to my other unfinished paintings and work on them a bit more.
My exhibit at the Derry Public Library this month will be finished on Friday. I'll be taking down the paintings that day. It was a bit strange for me, but I actually missed seeing some of them in my studio while they were gone. I don't usually have emotional attachments to my paintings once they are finished, so I was surprised that I felt that way.
When I am thinking about what I want to paint, then working on the composition, then the actual painting, I feel creative and satisfied. Once the painting is done, I'm on to the next one and I don't usually think about the ones that are finished.
More snow predicted this week, so it will be a good week for more painting. I like snow, but I'm also feeling ready for spring to appear. I guess I'll have to wait a little bit more.
I have been putting some old drawings and paintings up on eBay. This is the link: http://www.ebay.com/usr/avisiblevoice
