11/13/09 – Ten minutes later…

In my last post, I said, “I’m tuckered out and sort of not feeling well. Hopefully I’ll be back in the swing of things tomorrow night.” Easy for me to say! Ten minutes later and the next 24 hours were not pretty. I definitely was sick! I’ll spare you the details and I’ll just simply say that I feel much better! Lordy…

So, I’m back (thank you God) and tonight I finally added some paint to my picture:

Yes, my drawing is off quite a bit. That’s OK. In fact, I never quite get it exactly right even when I’m finished. I’m not one to trace the picture or project it onto the board. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I just prefer to try to define and refine as I go. I like the challenge. 

So far, I’m enjoying this painting. It’s a different subject than what I’m used to. Notice how there aren’t any whiskers, paws or wagging tails? Don’t get me wrong. I love the pup portraits and I have one that I’m supposed to get started on very soon! It’s just nice to switch it up from time to time.

I guess it’s time to go to bed. At least, that’s what my dog is saying.
