This painting was a joy to paint. Tried to keep it simple so that I could enjoy an easy day. Speaking of an easy or hard painting...I am curious how many of you fellow artists eat your way through a bad painting? I paint at home so that I can be close to my pantry. I guess if I ever get a studio I will have to design a kitchen for it. Anyway, some days if I am struggling with a painting I will take a break and get a snack. I will usually start out with something healthy like almonds. But then...I will need a little something sweet to go with that. Back to the painting. A while later(15 minutes or so) I will think that having some protein might help me paint better. A half a jar of crunchy peanut butter later I head back to the painting. This pattern repeats itself until I complete the painting. Any othe guilty souls out there? I am happy to report that I can still button my jeans after finishing this painting.
