Here is my latest painting......I tried watercolor and couldn't get it, so went back to acrylic. This is done on wood that I first painted my signature red. I've done this scene before in charcoal, then pastel. I used the pastel to go by. I'm happy with it right now, except that I see I put the intersection of Water St. in the wrong place. I'll fix it later.
This is the first painting I've done in a little while, partly because I have been going to Machias three times a week for physical therapy. Since it's an hour each way, it takes up a lot of time. My shoulders are getting better, though, so it is worth it. It seems like my life is devoted to this end, as if functioning shoulders is all that matters. I suppose it is a prerequisite for doing the things I like to do and therefore worthy of my focus. Nevertheless, I would have been happier if the pain had gone away by itself. I'm not sure if I will recover completely, which apparently is the fate of human beings as they grow older. I never thought I would get old.
