Lounging in White

8 x 10 Oil on Canvas

Holie Schomlie, its 2010, can you believe it!! Boy, I've had a rough time getting back to painting after the holidays and there was a trip to the Carribean thrown in there too.  It felt very much like falling of the exercise wagon, once I'm in the groove and in the exercise habit,  my day doesn't feel complete without it.  But then there is an interuption and it's tough to get back into it and maybe even there's a little fear. Totally unfounded and completely ridiculous fear.  So the best way I have found to move past the fear is to take action, it works everytime (not always easy to do).  I started this painting yesterday and felt really rusty, but when I went back to it today it felt much better and the joy of painting was stirred.  My little painting assistant was so excited to be back in the studio she stepped in my palette in a moment of glee, see below:
