If a man has any greatness in him, it comes to light, not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of his daily work.
At the end of a couple seriously crappy weeks I shooed the kids and husband out the door and forced myself to get to the nice cold basement and do something. I worked on some backgrounds that I was less then thrilled with and pushed myself to keep going even after I was done.
Collage elements in the background. Mixed media. Just a little something that sort of painted itself. While I painted it I thought of a few friends who have been there for me, especially the last couple weeks, thought it’s not specifically anyone.
Emailed a couple friends and one slapped it up as her wallpaper on her computer, and the other said she’d hang it on her mantel. So guess who’s feeling pretty superb about that now? Really, I’ve got some amazing people who know just how to make me feel great about my art.
I’m totally late joining in Sunday Sketches, but go on over there and see what those talented people are up to.
