This week, we are to paint something using lots of texture. Cathy Johnson, our leader and teacher, painted an old barn/grain storage building. I decided to use one of Sweetie's photographs of an interesting lock against wooden boards in the sunshine of St. Augustine, Florida. I used my artistic license and painted the lock and metal blue with violet shadows. I think it was just a dark grey metal, in real life.
And for some reason I feel totally drained of energy lately. At first, I thought it was the head cold, but now I'm not so sure. Sweetie says it's the time change but that's only an hour change so I doubt it. I can feel a slump coming on and have to fight it off before it gets me and I don't want to do anything but sit and vegetate...I'm thinking a lack of direction is the culprit. What do I want to paint that will energize me and get me going? Perhaps I need to put these crows away for a while and do something else - something bright and colorful and warm and fun. But what??? I certainly can't blame the weather for this mood - it's 75F out today and supposed to be the same tomorrow!!!
