Still Life

This ws started about a month ago while she was sleeping on the couch. I finished it the best I could from memory since the photos I took were deleted off my phone by accident.

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

Chrstmas eve conflagration

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.

Paper Towel

I arranged the same piece of paper towel six different ways and drew them one at a time with a ten minute timer. It turned out to be a really good way to get more drawing practice in. The only thing I’m going to change is that for now fifteen minutes might work better so that the studies are more finished.
