In my last post, I mentioned that it's been so long since my last real painting session that my studio felt "foreign." That led to my comment that it's a good thing I don't mind traveling in a strange land. When I had a few hours this past weekend, I reacquainted myself with my easel, and this lady's face appeared. I began with a palette knife background, then surprised myself by painting her into the plane with a brush...of course, I was so pleased to see her, I got stuck and didn't go any further. I usually err on the side of simplicity, much to the experts' chagrin. But since "simplicity" is my word for 2010, I'm not bothered. Don't you be bothered by silly critics, either, my friend. Get into that workspace and create! Tell those voices in your head to SHUT UP! And then, go, do what your heart desires! I'll be here to cheer you on... Love & Laughter, DJ
