Awhile back I made a fold and cut ornament... which I never posted or gave instructions for. Eventually I might.
And then I thought, thats a simple thing to paint. It would be good to start up again with something simple.
So, I painted it.
It was a good reminder of how much I love painting, and how much I miss it. And how terribly, horribly, completely rusty I am at it.
I started it one night in November and never got back to it until last night, when I decided to be done with it. Not because its the best it can be and completely finished, but because it served its purpose--it was a reason to get the paints out, and to remember how fun painting is, and how hard.
Here is how it looked, at various points in its life. I noticed too late that when I held the iphone too close to the painting it made the whole picture look cold, with a sort of grey-blue cast over the whole thing. Something to watch for next time.
