It's been quite a few days since my last post, but I just couldn't seem to get much accomplished these last few days. I started a painting of an apple on a cloth, and wasn't happy with the colors I used to paint the white cloth, so I changed that, then I wasn't happy with the apple, and changed to a different apple... etc... so, I finally finished it, and I'm happy with it, but can't seem to get a good picture. I like to take pictures outside in the natural light, but it's been raining here for the last few days!!! so I haven't been able to take any pictures. I started a couple of other small paintings. Nothing I was happy with.... I think sometimes I just temporarily lose touch with that thing that does the painting, and I'm left trying to do it on my own.. at least, that's what it feels like. Do you ever look back at a really nice painting or drawing, and say - how did I do that????
Why can't I do it again now????? I'd really like to be able to be more consistent. or maybe that never happens?????
