So I haven't painted for awhile since I've been so consumed by money problems. Today, though, I finally got up to the studio and went at it. This is another painting inspired by a picture in the newspaper. The minute I saw it I knew how I wanted to do it, with the huge foreground, I tore it out of the paper and it has sat on the table for weeks, amidst all the other clutter that is always there. As I was picking things up in an effort to tidy up before Carrie comes to visit tomorrow I unearthed the picture and immediately headed for my paints. It was already after three, so the dogs were nervous about their supper.......and rightfully so. I worked until almost 4:30 before I gave in to their pathetic faces. The painting was almost done by then, and after I came back from walking them I finished it. It's a rare painting that comes out just as I picture it, but this one pretty much did. It would probably look better if I cut it in half ( it's 18x24) and discarded the bottom, but for now it will stay as it is.
