In the Trenches

This lady was too much to resist; dressed in her trench coat seeming to melt right into Gustave Caillebotte's Rainy Day.

Austin scenes are coming! I'm mulling things over and need to go downtown on a sketch crawl. Truth be told, I feel like I have artistic ADD. I stand in my studio looking through sketches and photos and have so many I want to do, but can't focus on one thing. My time is so very short right now, which probably increases my anxiety about working and completing things. My best work is completed in one sitting. I am really pleased with a larger painting I did today, though while I was working, I thought sure it was going to be a mess and have to be scraped. That is the reward for pushing through.

Robin, I really like this painting. As you mentioned, it has a "Through the Looking Glass" feel to it; she could be stepping into the scene. The brushwork is stunning.

I, too, am having "one of those days" in the studio today. I feel as if I am wearing someone else's glasses. Thankfully, I know it will pass.
