My gosh, it’s been awhile since I have posted any paintings I am currently working on, as Christmas always throws me off. I don’t know how other artists do it, but I am just so busy doing Christmasy things in December, I just can’t, and don’t seem to have, the time or even the concentration to paint! I need to be in a relaxation mode, and the month of December is NOT that!
So anywayyyyyy… In the beginning of this month, I kept procrastinating just picking up the pastels and begin painting again. Then one day, I just sat down and grabbed one of the few unfinished pieces sitting in my art room, and started, just a little at a time. “Get in the flow… get in the flow…you can do this!”, I kept saying to myself.
So here are two of the paintings I am finishing up…John-Boy Walton (who I have always loved by the way…and we need more shows like this) annnndddd an Amish Boy peeking over a quilt on the clothesline. The Amish boy painting I had originally posted in November, when I just started him, and I can’t believe this is how long he has been sitting unfinished. I am now going to finish him, and try to come up with a title for this painting. My goal now is to do 12 amish paintings for a new calendar, but we will see how that goes. I would love to do more angels as well.
In the meantime, these are the beginnings of the two paintings, and I WILL keep you posted! Enjoy!
