Day 3 – Tying up Lose Ends and Recharging Batteries

Ah, much better. Got home while it was still daylight and had time to work in my studio.

The first painting is on paper, 7×9 inches.
The second is on canvas, 8×10 inches.

I’d started both of these last weekend, so I just finished them up tonight.

Even with the good camera, the colors on the second are odd. I’ll take better photos over the weekend in daylight.

The first is...

Day 2 – Battery Snafu

So again, I get home after 9 tonight, and have just a short time to get in the studio and work.

Time well spent, though. I managed to finish something that I’d been hoping to get to, and I’m happy with it.

The photo doesn’t do it justice. No sooner had I grabbed the camera than the “battery empty” message flashed across the screen and the camera shut itself off.


So what next?

Art Every Day Month, Day 1

Today is Day 1 of Art Every Day Month, a challenge run by Leah Piken Kolidas over at Creative Every Day.
I’ve been all excited about this challenge, and was anxious to get home and do some ART tonight.

After a very l-o-o-o-n-g day, I arrived home at 9PM, exhausted and a bit deflated. Wasn’t sure what smidge of creativity I might have left.
