A Couple of Paintings
My neighbor was throwing out some particle board. I believe it's subflooring. I got it and painted it. I call it "Be Still and Know." It's pretty big, but exactly how big I'm not sure since as I was measuring it, my measuring tape jumped inside its little plastic box and got all wound up. I think it was about 24"x16". It's very heavy. I have to get some wire attached to it for hanging. I liked the way this piece took the paint so I went back and grabbed the other piece she was throwing away. It's tall and thin. I haven't decided what to put on it yet.
This one is on canvas board. I did a painting a while back and I liked it but it never felt finished. Yesterday I decided to paint this woman on it, but after I got her painted, I no longer liked the background so I ended up changing it entirely. If I'd known I was going to do that, I would have just done a whole new painting on something else but that's ok. I like this one better anyway.
I've been working on my yard, planting some flowers and generally cleaning up. It is suddenly summer!
I hope everyone is having a good week.
