The birth of a painting
This is how it begins. This painting was inspired by a photo of a flower. I loved the colors in it and thought it would be a challenge, something I am always up for. this took roughly 8-9 hours over two days, I should say nights since most of my paintings birth sometime between 10pm and 3am. My brain just seems to be wired to paint and create at that time, when the world slows down, quiets down and gets dark. As you can see I have taken over Ethan's room as my temp studio, I just haven't been inspired in the basement and his room is the only other option. It works well for me, small and cozy, no distractions, well once the kids are asleep.
Please ignore the socks!!! I am usually a little claustrophobic when I wear socks and almost always go barefoot, however when I paint I get cold feet and socks seem to fix that.
The finished product.
