New work, "Seasons"

Feb 26, 2010


I started this drawing, Seasons, several weeks ago and then hit a major artist's block.  This week I was determined to finish it.  I normally don't like letting things sit unfinished for a long time, particulary artwork.  A good example of this is a 30" x 40" landscape painting that I had started over four years ago.  I was actually nearly done with it when I decided to paint over the whole thing a few weeks ago.  My family was shocked to say the least, and I explained that the painting no longer was relevant to me.  I had moved on, emotionally and stylistically.  I am about a third of the way done with the new painting, and I already feel a sense of renewed energy and vision.  I'll try to post some pictures of my progress in the near future.

I was looking through my seller favorites at ETSY this morning and saw this new painting... I thought I'd come over to Habit of Art to tell you how much I love it! It is a beautiful painting.
