5 X 5 inch oil painting on panel.
S O L D
Last week I finished a painting that was extremely difficult for me to complete (I’ll post it here in a few weeks). It was a street scene on an overcast day. Finishing it took the joy for painting out of me for a while and I wasn’t very happy with the way it turned out.
While trying to recharge my creative batteries I was looking at Carol Marine’s blog. Her still life paintings always inspire. I had just bought a pumpkin for Halloween and it seemed like a fitting subject. An hour and a half later I was done and I had so much fun painting it! I was able to use colors I normally don’t when painting outdoors, I was very comfortable inside, I didn’t have to drive anywhere and I finished it really quickly. Talk about satisfying!
What do you do to recharge your creative batteries?
