It is usually good to see paintings leave my studio. And I have permission to show which one left today.
I was very happy to paint this as it’s a larger version of a small painting I did when I was going through my ” make Pisticci more colourful” period. It feels good when someone likes a painting where I tried to do something a little different.
And it was lovely to get a photo of it in its new home.
I think maybe I needed a little break after painting all weekend so I made 2 more canvases today.
I wore the back support thingy while sawing and stapling which felt good. And my homemade mat kept my knees from freezing while kneeling on the ice cold tiles.
I also did some yoga exercises to help strengthen my back. ( well, one exercise…..5 times!)
I spent some time on the background of a portrait as I’ve learned that if I am not in a face painting mood, usually because I need a break, then painting backgrounds is a good way to make some progress.
Just looked out of the window and saw the moon.
Am happy that it’s wine time now. Been a very nice day.
