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

I tried a couple of different things today and wiped them off. I think I was starting with something too ambitious after having been on hiatus. And while having limited time to work. My schedule couldn't be more full this week. I needed to pull back and just do something simple and allow myself to see and paint loosely. As a note, I often work from photos, but I squint quite a bit when looking at them and when looking at my painting. I'm going to be very wrinkly when I get old I think. There must be a better way!

Disregard my gloved thumb in the lower section of the painting. Its late and I'm too lazy to edit it out.

Thank you ALL! If you knew how much I was struggling right now though... &%$#&!
One good day followed by many starts, failures, wipe offs and wipe outs!
Such is the gift.

Wonderfully loose and I too fear I may be very wrinkly from squinting as well.
