SOLD (6x6 in.)
This month we read John Owen's "A Prayer for Owen Meany". Have you ever read this book? I have mixed feelings about it. There were points, especially in the beginning, when I really didn't enjoy it and just plowed ahead. It was long...600+pages...and to be honest I skimmed parts of it. I've never read anything quite like it, so I think it will stay with me for awhile.
I'm still learning so much about painting. I was feeling a little discouraged earlier today. It's so easy to want to be further ahead (in my skills) than I am today. My husband reminded me of a couple of things though...even if my paintings don't look much improved, I've been growing in some areas. I'm painting all of my still life's from life now. Just a couple of months ago I was painting them from photos. Also, I'm drawing most of them free hand vs. relying on a grid on the computer. Not that I think it is bad to paint from photos (I still do that) or to use a grid (I still do that, too). I'm just happy to be growing in some of these skills. Even though I can get discouraged, the challenge of it all is one of the things that keeps bringing me back to the easel.
