I am currently going to start back to working on a piece that I did about a year ago. I don’t usually do portraits but an image of a girl with long flowing hair came to be out of no where or maybe it was from a dream. I started with a canvas with a light blue background and sketched the girl with pencil. I went back and painted in some detail on her like her hair which is done in gold. At the time I thought she would be an angel but after working on her I realized that she was mortal not ethereal. When I began to add embellishment, I wasnt inspired by the results so she has been sitting in the closet. Since then I have thought about her off and on and lately have realized how to finish it so my plan is to work on that tonight and I will post a picture when she is done but the working title is Girl Interrupted. Her face has a very wistful expression which is why I think this title works.
It’s so frustrating having to be at work and away from my art supplies for 12 hours a day and then I get home and there’s so much mundane chores to accomplish that my energy is gone and I never make it into the studio. Wish me luck, I do think that writing about the ideas gives me inspiration, thanks for reading……….TTYL
