Tender Moment, 16 x 12
YAY, it's September; school days are here, and I, for one, have Beginning of the Year engraved in my mind to be this time after Labor Day. Although the fresh start in January is a nice re-boot, something about early fall says to me, "let's get going!"
With that in mind, I have re-dedicated myself to daily drawing, whether on the cool (free) app "Paper" for iPad, or on canvas with paint in daily quick sketches. Such things increase confidence and freedom of expression -- if I'm not struggling with or constantly correcting the underlying drawing and shapes, I can actually sling some paint and be loose!!
Last week, I joined several great art friends to paint and celebrate at a nearby lake and winery -- and Provence is soon on the horizon -- in fact, we leave next week for painting fun in France, truly a welcome and special time on this magic carpet ride :-)
