Here we are, January almost over and February about to set in. In this part of the country it is easy to get Spring fever about now. Although I am happy that the days are getting longer and a little warmth would be welcome, I find that as I am getting older, I am learning to appreciate Winter more. The weather makes me more of a shut in than usual and my studio time is increased. That is a positive point for me. My studio is my creative haven. I treasure my time there. Winter seems to free me up for just a bit more painting time and that is definitely a plus!
Here is another landscape painting done in acrylic. I used newspaper collage for the trees and gold metallic paint for the foliage. 17x17x1.5 canvas. I have been reading so much about focus in art and creating a series. I have a very hard time with this. I am very disciplined and look at painting as my work. I dedicate lots of time to creating art. It is the subject matter of the work where I have a hard time. This is something that I need to work on. I have just painted by sixth landscape yet I feel an abstract lurking beneath the surface that has to be painted! Artists A.D.D. I think!
Peace to you!
