8×10 oil painting still in progress but close to being done.
This would have been done by now but . . . I. Got. The. Flu. I had just finished the wonderful book “You Are a Badass” by Jen Sincero and was really, really, really feeling like a badass. I had my goal list for February, the ideas were flowing, I was making things happen, then Boom! I ended up watching t.v. for the second half of the month. Tomorrow is a new day. Heck! It’s a new month! My whiteboard is ready for my March goals. My studio has missed me.
I want to take a moment to tell you about the above piece. I worked from about 5 different photos that I had taken in California in January. The evening we were at Santa Monica Pier, the Saints had just lost a playoff game to the Vikings and the mood was rather somber. I pulled out my reference photos of happier people from Newport Beach that I had taken a couple of days earlier and put that crowd at Santa Monica Pier. There are, however, a couple of people (the central guy in the blue shirt for one) who represent the Saints fans.
