I blew off the restaurant today and went to my studio and got in almost 8 hours of painting. The gallery/studio is closed to the public on Mondays, so I knew I could get stuff done. I worked on a 30"x40" oil (below) of Twilight Dining. I started this a couple of months ago and still am not quite finished. I started getting bored, so I started a new one. It's a 30" x 24" oil of a barn at the edge of our village. I kept this one really clean and simple. In fact, I completed it. I think. When I get a chance to go back to the studio again, I might take another swipe at it. The picture was taken quickly of these paintings and do not quite accurately represent the color.
I feel much better now. It's like finally sneezing after a lot of false starts!
