Finally, back at it!!!
I must confess ... it has been so long since I have painted that I was afraid I had forgotten how. Yesterday I visited the ice cream shop in Spanish Sprints next to where I use to paint at The Great Find. I asked the owner if it would be OK with him if I paint outside his shop and he thought it was a great idea. I like painting there because of the roof over the sidewalk for the shade and protection from the rain. I planned to be there today featuring my Christmas Special $195 for a 5"x7" oil portrait. It was just what I needed to get me to squeeze out my paints and sit down at my easel to get started on what I hoped to do in the Villages. WELL, I never made it out of my studio...I had so much fun working on this all day and I feel like I can paint again. This is from a photo I took of Hallel, our 15 year old granddaughter... I hope she likes it because it is going to be her Christmas gift. Should I make that barette blue?
