My pencil work has been long overdue, or at least I felt that way. It has lost something in the photography and I've noticed that lately in the past few posts.. This piece measures 16"x20" with the mat .. BJ
Yes, sometimes I look and see it differently, so I redid the Hollyhocks, I didn't like the first one at all, but as I said it was just putting brush to paper.. this one I added the top flower, did away with a lot of gobblygook (technical term, for sure) in the background. BJ
I did sit and paint a bit these past few days... Its the fact that I painted, not the subject or the quality of the painting. That wasn't so important right now... just that I did it. I can't thank all of you enough for your emails, comments and understanding, your words that touched my heart and how much it has meant to me.. Yes, Mary Louise was a cat, but she was my cat. Some may not understand how your heart can hurt from losing a little cat, but each one of you did ... BJ
I'm an artist painting my way through this journey called life.. Watercolor and pencil are my main mediums and I'm honored to have won awards for my work in both.
The destination is not so important as the daily trek in trying to get there.
