At the end of June I had art company and we got the itch to paint. This was what I came up with...it took me about 4-5 hours to do, and I actually like it quite a bit. It is different than my usual style in the face area, especially, and it was quite a challenge that way, but after getting over the hurdles and deeming it 'completed', I have found that I do really like it, quite a bit.
I haven't officially titled this piece yet, or even painted another one since (which makes me a bit sad), but I want to. I think part of my struggle sometimes is that I don't do it enough, and make a bunch of excuses why I don't, but it shouldn't be that way with life and I am forever trying to figure out how to balance that tricky line better. One of my problems is I have so many things I'm interested in, and no good way to fit them all into my regular routine. I need to sit down and notch out some good time for things before they pass me by.
