Painting has been a little intermittent lately but I've been working on a number of pieces when I find the time. It's been hard to accept this slowing down of the creative process but the craziness that comes with owning a pup seems to suck up most of my energy. There are certainly days when all four of my animals drive me nuts but I wouldn't trade them in for any amount of paint!
You may be wondering what this second image is. I wanted to explore the idea of self portraits this year so this is a torso piece I'm currently working on. I decided I didn't like the direction the color was going so I've painted it black and plan to start over. I want to add something to the torso but I'm not sure what direction to take with it just yet. I think sometimes its good to sit and ponder on pieces for a while until an idea strikes.
