Prep Work


18x18 oil on linen - sold

I don't know what has happened to me in the last two weeks, but I think I have too many irons in the proverbial fire. This was done a week or so ago. I don't think I posted it yet.

Last week kinda fell apart, and I learned to not schedule so much! Between hair cuts, drs., early release from school, girl scouts, tea with friends, etc. I just didn't get to focus on artwork. Its amazing how fast your schedule can fill if you aren't careful!

I'm an involved parent too so I have to really balance things carefully. The art has to be top priority between 9-2 basically. My work so far this week has been less than stellar and I've mostly put final touches on pieces and prepared them for framing. Lets hope I can do better tomorrow and finish the week on a high note.

Your brushwork is beautiful, as usual. Even with such a complex scene, it reads great. The light on the cook's jaw really draws your eye.

I think you need to cut yourself some slack, Robin. All that stuff is important, too.
I love this one. there is so much going on. And everything seems to support the action of the prep cook. Chop, chop, chop. Then the detail in the door that leads to the dining room moves the eye and reminds us of the purpose of his work. Wonderful.

Robin, your paintings are beautiful and inspiring! Sometimes all the tasks of life fill up more time than we wish, but know that your work is just such a delight! Thank you!

I love the painting and very much sympathize with your scheduling quandaries.

It is sometimes hard to order the priorities but family is the most important. Mommy track is the hardest and best job in the world. (Nine to two at night is usually my painting time.)
