A Dull Girl
Do you every get tired of yourself? That's what drove me into the studio today with the box cutter to do some cardboard box therapy and clean up a rat hole of empty boxes. After a few hours of slashing and trashing I felt much better. But I have been a dull girl for the last week.
I did the painting on canvas in acrylic of the peach tree. My peach tree is right outside my studio where I can watch the peaches fatten up day by day. Peach ice cream. Peach cobbler. Peaches!!
The painting went on for days; it was like that book "One Hundred Years of Solitude" only it was about the painting that went on forever.
Or maybe it was me. It's been two years since I've done a large (24x30") painting on canvas. Maybe I have to work through some stuff before I get my chops back.
Anyway I'm calling it done and have set it aside. It kept me busy and distracted which was a good thing.
I like the part about the peach angels. They are up there right now sorting through the bins to bring me some really good ones. They always do.
Plus I got to paint a face. I like painting faces. I noticed that most of the paintings I own are of faces. Faces and abstracts for the most part. Predominantly faces though.
The voice is soft and legible for about 500 words and then it poops out on me. Voice therapy next. Shellie predicted that by this fall I will be back in full sail. I'm holding onto that. In the meantime I made 2 phone calls yesterday and didn't do bad. The swelling is subsiding day by day. I'm practically good to go. xo
