Christmas rush

December came and I have procrastinated and now I’m behind in what I wanted to get done before the end of the year. There’s still time though. I can do it.

One more painting after this and then I’m free of commissions and I can work on whatever I want. It’s been two months now since I’ve done a painting for myself. I really like this painting. I did a good job if I say so myself.

August

In this portrait I didn’t let the watercolor dry all the way between layers so I think this looks more like a watercolor painting that some of my other paintings.  I fearfully approach an empty page, I am afraid again after I finished drawing before I start painting and I am most afraid when I’m almost done, but I have some details left to do. I’m trying to let go and just go for it and that is what I did here.
