Yeah. It's not happening. I've mentioned that I post a blog by Sunday evening whether I have anything to say or not. This is one of those "not" weeks.
Rather than torment you with disjointed, half-baked thoughts, how 'bout I show you what's been on my easel?
11 x 14 oil Just a few strokes shy of being done.
This is a different approach for me, more aggressive, less "pretty". The brushstrokes are heavier, the colors pushed a bit more. My thoughts are leaning toward atmosphere rather than a physical likeness of something. I'm thinking about paint as much as place.
Because I've been painting all day my brain is definitely in picture mode. Rather than fight it any longer I surrender.
By the way, the bowls from last week turned out spectacularly. I can hardly wait to see them all lined up ready to be loaded with steaming hot soup!
