ALBERTA BLUE with POPLAR LEAVES
20" x 24" acrylic on standard canvas
It doesn't look as though I have gotten very far with this painting, does it? However, there have been several hours of glazing done, and the main leaves are beginning to take shape. I still have to put in the background leaves - but that can wait a bit. In fact, this whole painting may have to take a bit of a backseat for a while.
"Why?" you ask... good question! My life has suddenly become rather BUSY!!!
I have 2 weeks left of a class that I am teaching, which takes one of my mornings each week.
I have an art student for 6 weeks of lessons, beginning next week.
I have a watercolor painting commission which I will be starting this week.
I am taking a class for 6 weeks & have 5 weeks left.
I need to get my seedlings planted (tomatoes, herbs, peppers, etc.) for the vegetable garden I plant each year.
I just received a commission for 14 paintings. Fortunately, they are for 8" x 8" paintings, and I have a couple of months in which to do them, but this is still LOTS of work!
So I am one happy artist at this point! Lots to keep me in the studio, and lots outside of the studio to keep me balanced.
Okay - back to work!!!
