Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek, 6 x 6
sold

The last several days have been a scramble.   The girls have had tests, Ben has been swamped with work and, well, it's generally been busier than normal.  I did paint early this morning, and was pleased with my composition, but got carried away with the brush.  Having painted for two years, I find I still have days when I can't find my identity as a painter, my "handwriting." Today was one of those days.  Maybe I can attribute it to lack of sleep or distraction.  Probably!

Hi Julie,

Your own painting handwriting after two years? 1. You do have your own
"hand", signature, style -- whatever you want to call it. And 2. After two years that means it was just a tragedy you didn't start painting sooner. This is lovely. Boy mothers have a tough time seeing how great they are. Maybe that's fatigue. You're a great painter.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Julie:
I'm enjoying your little paintings so much. You are inspiring me to get to work on a daily basis -- although I know it won't be daily for me!
Keep it going -- you will be surprised at how much you grow. Even the masters didn't paint masterpieces every time!

Camille, you're right--I expect to do something I love every time--that's nuts! Thanks for the positive feedback. It all helps!

Julie, you have a wide assortment of delicious greens and those wonderful brushstrokes that could only be done by the one and only Julie Davis. Don't listen to that inner critic!
