I'd like to say that things have settled down around here, but that hasn't exactly happened. There's always something, and I know that what it comes down to is just making time for stuff, regardless of how busy things get. I've been making an effort to get some painting done, though I haven't exactly hit my stride yet.
Last week my good friend Kimberly Santini of Painting a Dog a Day fame threw out an invitation, of sorts. For the last few years Kim has been taking the Dog a Day project on an equine tangent for Kentucky Derby week. It was that reminder which inspired me to do my best to complete a daily painting each day this week. Not quite as exciting as the Thirty Horses, Thirty Days I have done in the past, but something I can grasp at the moment, given my schedule!
Raymar cotton canvas panel of little Brigitte, the filly born a week ago today. Not a lot of paint used, as I kind of decided I liked the washy look. There are also only three colours employed: red umber, ultramarine blue and cerulean blue. If I owned a tube of cobalt, I could have kept it to two!
One day down....we'll see what I manage tomorrow!
