I'm finally through traveling for a little while. It seems as if I've been gone forever on one mission or another. Returning to painting has been a challenge. You'd think that someone who gets as much out of art as I do would be excited to get back in the groove, but no. All the old anxieties and insecurities come roaring back - will I be able to do what I want - will it be any good, blah, blah, blah.
This painting is a little challenge painting dreamed up by my friend and teacher Polly Jackson. The subject's name is Trudy - don't have a clue who Trudy is, but she is a wonderful subject. I keep wanting to type Turdy - wonder if the cosmos is trying to tell me something!
The challenge Polly posed was to paint Trudy in any style you wanted to, and send her a photo so that she could post all of them on her student blog www.areyoupainting.blogspot.com. They should be posted sometime on Saturday. Check them out.
