After six weeks of constant painting, day and night, for the Spark Commission, I was totally burned out. In fact, I had no desire to even pick up a paint brush for weeks. Yesterday, it had finally been a few weeks too long since I’d painted and I was starting to get the itch.
I pulled out all my stuff while Peanut was sleeping and did a quick 90 minute painting. It’s not my best painting ever, but I’m glad to see that I didn’t totally lose all my abilities after almost two months of no painting. I wish the colors came out better in this photo– the purples and oranges are quite a bit brighter — but overall I’m happy with this painting. A little glaze after it dries and it will be done.
