I haven't painted in a year.
We put our house up for sale. The market was hot and it seemed like the right time. Everyone wants to see a staged house - I didn't think they would want to see 10 years of acrylic drips on the floor toilet walls etc. So I cleaned and scrubbed and polished and scrubbed some more. Behold the house looked pretty good after we got rid of half our stuff.
We sold the house and bought a condo. Goodby to my cozy studio in the basement that was all mine. No more studio, no more storage. We renovated the condo and it was impossible to paint because we were living in a mess with no heat and no lights. Then the reno was finished and I didn't paint..
I used every excuse in the book to avoid the easel but no longer. The best way to restart is with a little pressure. I bought 3 canvases to enter the Trekell Pet portrait contest.
Its funny how when you take a picture you see things that you would change. but it will have to do.
(I also bought a New Wave POSH Glass Palette) you should get one.
