Ready to Rally the Paint Brushes

by Permanent Posies on February 10, 2011

Started a painting last week after finally finishing one that I had been working on since summer.  That was a mistake!  I mean working on one for so long.  I noodled it to death, which is art lingo for “overworked it without a positive result”. Maybe some day I will like it, after it sits there for a year or so.

That happens sometimes.  I will go back to a painting that I never framed and stuck aside because I couldn’t look at it anymore…..sure it was a disaster….and think, what was so wrong with that?  I am hoping this one will be that way but right now, I don’t want to see it for a long time.

Meanwhile, I do have another one that I started in the fall with a great start.  I am gun shy now, however, and afraid of noodling IT to death, so I won’t even paint on it.  In fact, I have been having painters block and just read about painting, instead of actually doing it.  That is getting me no where fast!!

So, last week, I got back on my horse and picked up a brush….put on music from my son’s wedding playlist (which I might say, is quite good)……and began again.  It is like riding a bike.  Right side of the brain heaven….nirvana… least until I had to cook dinner.

When I get home from my little jaunt to the mountains, I am going to neglect my blog for a couple of weeks and really get with it.  Big talk from an obsessive blogger!  We’ll see, right?

So, here is what’s on my easel.  I just needed to paint some roses to get me back on track…..and I have barely begun.  Will post the results….hopefully within a couple weeks, instead of months.

You have a beautiful talent. MY mother was a painter and never happy with her work. I always thought it was lovely and treasure the paintings she did that I have.

Sue, you are such a talented artist. Your beautiful paintings are so awesome and I am glad you are back to painting. Yes, your blogs are fun and also very good, but your Momma thinks your paintings are much better and will bring more happiness to others!

You have a very painterly approach–the sign of a good artist!!!

Wow. This really, ridiculously gorgeous!

You are so talented. I love the dreamy quality of your painting and I’m glad you started it again. It sounds like a perfect thing to paint to a wedding playlist.

I really enjoyed my stop here on Alphabe-Thursday’s letter “R”.

Thank you for linking.
