I labored on my paintings today. I completely wiped down 2 canvases, and was feeling, well... discouraged. I had the BEST subjects - roses, peonies, and ... more roses. I had a perfect view of the morning on the river. Yes, it was an early start to the day (waaaay before sunrise) because of an ongoing skirmish between my cats - enough said. I think I may have been tired. But then I took my acrylics out and plopped myself down in front of this vase of my favorite peonies and I felt.... just Happy. Pharrell Williams Happy. Foot tapping, humming, smiling and relaxed. And then THIS happened. Not my usual. But very free... very...HAPPY! I hope it makes you happy too!
This just may become a REALLY big painting.
