Carry A Big Whip
Each day I try to do some artwork. I am usually able to work without any distractions [other than normal daily distractions of dogs, horses, and husband! ] But of late, the days have had a myriad of minor and major distractions. I know it must be a sign of the holidays that are upon us....baking, shopping, partying ....making lists! It all takes its toll. Any day spent away from the studio feels like time lost for me...as if I lost that one time when I was going to really do my best work yet! ....That one painting that would have that WOW factor!! A day wasted! I wonder how many other artists have that same burn....that same push each day to create and to maybe actually do that best work ever? It is always about the next painting!
My latest painting is pictured above, a hunt scene...and what captured my interest was the whip and the movement of the horse....."Carry A Big Whip " is a 20 x 16" casein on board. It will be available on my website if you want to see a larger image.
Tomorrow is another day where obligations will take me away from the studio. What if tomorrow was going to be the day that I would be painting my masterpeice....and I wasn't there working on it! How will I ever know?!!!
