I wanted to say something about the other day's movie post but blogger was acting quirky. It happened that I started taking images of the monkey while deciding on a pose for my painting. I was having so much fun and he was hanging around my studio for so long that the movie sort of happened by itself. Anyway, I'm happy with this painting and trying to stay loose.

This bowl was a gift. It's made from Acacia Hardwood and was beautifully carved by someone somewhere in the Pacific. I'm happy with the way I painted it and the daffodils, two items I have little experience painting but rewarding. Funny, but the plum was the challenge today since it went on streaky every time I repainted it.

I paint for myself and the pleasure it brings me. It's because I like getting down and dirty and thick and smudgy and having fun with color. It's like spring when you take your jacket off for the first time and not much stands between you and the feel of the air on your skin. I spoke with someone who said when you're stuck, take some time off. I think I just did. Hopefully I can work my way back to daily painting and start making the right choices.
