February by DJ Afternoon sun but wind red scarf unwrapped welcome door opens wide Month of winter lend us your chills but yet chills along the spine beneath layers as hands move across canvas mind and eyes in sync breathe the heart's hidden embers Hot tea steeped and sipped through steam wet paint studied relief sighed avenues open almost answered questions passion paints critics defeated into silence ecstasy exhaled in spite of winter's chill
A small canvas to start off January 2012 and get the juices flowing: "Consternation in Yellow" by DJ oil on 12x12" canvas
And some WIP details of another canvas, which have since been developed into something with a bit more content: Perhaps I need to set a goal of painted canvases for the year? Let's see...the number 50 sounds reasonable. Yes, due to day-job demands, studio time is sporadic, but you know what? I've decided THAT'S OKAY. I give myself permission to walk into my studio anytime and paint for any span of time available. Take THAT, Inner Critic! Anyone out there in the blogosphere want to volunteer to be a February encourager for me? I certainly need it. Fifty canvases. You readers can check on me occasionally, okay? I'm going to need lots of Love & Laughter, DJ
An artist who enjoys oil painting, art journal swaps, ATC swaps, watercolor painting, drawing, mixed media, and talking about art with anyone who will talk back.
Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment, so I can repay the favor.
Hope God blesses you with lots of Love & Laughter...
