Don't Let Go

 

Little Zen Tree 2198

What an ugly time. Nothing in the news today worth noting except another mass shooting in Colorado. My yard is nothing but mud and dog shit.

But, there was a warm breeze and the sun was out...

That's life. That's EXACTLY how life works.

Just don't let go.

Sometimes... you just have to keep painting.

Just Keep Painting

Little Zen Tree 2186


The MOST IMPORTANT THING about painting is to just keep doing it.
Even when you're not inspired. Even when you aren't interested. Even when (fill in the blank)

Something Different

 

Little Zen Tree 2181

Ventured out of the parameters on the last couple trees. They are actually 5x7 inches which is larger than almost all the other trees (I think I may have done a few larger ones before but not very many).

This one kinda got away from me. The initial wash spread a little more than I intended and I found myself trying to make a big square look interesting. Overall though I'm not completely disgusted with it. The hues and tones are interesting. It's generally pleasing to look at. I paint a lot of trees I guess this one just is what it is and I'm going to let it be.

Also, the dog stole this off my drawing table several times while I was working on it so it has several bite marks and scratches that are worked into the painting so they're not noticeable at least in the digital view. In real life though you can see where he "gently mauled it"

I take it as a compliment that he steals my artwork and carries it around the house, but he doesn't really destroy it or rip it up. He just... carries it off and places it someplace.

I think he thinks he's helping me move on to the next thing and he's proud of me for making the little pictures.
