Back to Monday and Painting

Monday could not come soon enough this week. What a busy, hectic few days I've had. The traditional Greek dance competition this weekend made my head spin with everything going on. Plus which the kids I teach had to perform, so making sure they knew their stuff was on my mind. They were great, though. I really didn't need to worry. As they say, practice makes perfect! 

And that leads us back to painting! Practice, process, same thing.

The next painting was started last week, when I had a life. Okay, I'm being dramatic, but really, painting is the thing that ends up being pushed aside. Now, I don't want to get into the "if I had to go to a real job" thing. However, the reality is that painting isn't the priority, nor am I the person bringing home the bacon with my artwork. Maybe some day, but not now, so it has to wait.

It's first on the to-do list and it will happen. Just not exactly when I want it to happen. It's fine.

Another work begins
Here's the next work on deck. Another still life watercolor painting of veggies. Shapes and colors if I squint at the small section of reference photo. 

Darks and lights. Small size, short and sweet. Works for me.
