The down side to working on five projects at one time…….it takes a long time to finish any one project!
The up side is that when I get frustrated with one problem, I can put it aside and pick up a different one. Maybe that problem has solved itself while sitting in the corner?? No. Not so much.
Well anyway, I did finally get another one finished (I think). So that just leaves three more to finish. Hmmmm I think maybe I’ll start another one today.
I’m calling this one “Apothecary”. This little chest of drawers was not really a medicine or spice chest, but rather a nuts and bolts chest in someone’s work shop. But I like to think of it as an old medicine chest of drawers. My new friend here in Florida says you can paint it however you want “as long as you have a story……”
Anyway, I think it made a nice little still life set up. I don’t know what I’m doing with this painting yet – other than hanging it on my wall. It’s a 12″ X 12″ canvas and is painted with Golden Open. I love that I accidentally used colors that work well in my house. (not that it matters so much when you are creating art).
This is a new style of painting for me and I’m enjoying trying new things, pushing myself to stretch. After so many years of teaching it feels really good to concentrate on learning again.
