So, what started off as one painting has now turned into a series of paintings. I have missed painting and these little 8 inch by 10 inch artists canvases are just right for getting my hands back into paint for a spell. I normally really like to paint large canvas but i just don't have time for that right now with all the other nuttiness that i am up to on a daily basis and the three jobs i work.
The first in the series was Haddy Grimble, named after a line in a ridiculous John Lennon poem.
I had so much fun that Haddy just really whetted my appetite for Spring Makes Friends. As most people who know me can attest, i have a real obsession with sock monkeys. Not the newfangled variety either, but the real old Rockford red heeled sock monkeys. I predict many more sock monkey paintings in the future.
This second painting did nothing to abate my need for paint and so today i painted "The LAST Blind Date". As with the others, this is an acrylic on 8 by 10 canvas.
I cannot predict where this series of paintings is leading me... but based on my past experience, resistance IS futile.
printable thank yous!
