This little painting was in the ugly stage sitting on the counter for days. In the evenings when the bambinas were in their beds, I was too lazy to rise from my couch, scared of the dark and replulsed by the cold to leave the luminous shelter of the christmas tree to venture back into the kitchen. I pretend to be this tough, discplined loner, yet I am scarred of being 30 feet away from the nearest human on a hard chair when I would rather be in bed close to the warmth of my husband. #explicitunratedmaterial
I thought it would be beautiful and symbolic to light the advent wreath on Christmas Eve and let the candles die out while we ate and opened presents. Unfortunately the green plastic of the wreath caught on fire. Luckily my husband saw and put it out. I had already painted the candles on the 23rd and just did my best to ignore the charred parts of the wreath when finally getting back into the painting yesterday.
I saw this at the crafy store months ago and I just had to have it!
I was just in the mood to draw this today.
I made it through day two! I’m excited for two reasons. One is that I am starting to get an inkling that even the most simple object can make a great variety of interesting compositions. The second reason is that an Epson scanner/printer is on its way so in the future my posts will show what the drawing really looks like.
