Suspended Animation

7x5 oil on panel
$100 + $11 s/h - sold

This title may well describe me today (or perhaps humble pie?). I choked. I guess I was too proud of myself last week, because today I tried things and wiped off numerous times - large and small. I ended by going back to a scene I painted before. Something that might build my confidence. I think I liked the scene too because I felt a little lonely perhaps and wanted something with just a lone figure in it.

I quit early today and will take care of some business. Better luck tomorrow!

Well you nailed it with this one, so it was meant to be! I just love how her features fall off into the light.

Thanks Robin!

I love this Robin and hey we all have our moments. I can't remember how many times I've started something and gave up in frustration. Looks like your on the right track again.

Sometimes working through a painting when it hits the 'complicated' stage is a matter of just not giving in to the urge to drop it and wander about the house cleaning stuff or whatever your 'diversion' is. Or not wiping it off. I've been known to do both.
