"Herman in a Chair"
6" x 6"
oil on Raymar board
There will be more paintings of Herman - and I can't put my finger on it, but there is something about this painting that is him, yet it isn't. I guess when you miss someone that much and knew them just the same - you become very persnickety. It is wet and shows lots of glare off the wet paint, maybe that is what is bothering me. I plan to revisit it once more when the paint is dryer.
DH has dreams about him. I don't. I walk into a room and just slightly in my panning vision, I see him - just for a second...not a ghost, just like walking into a familiar room and seeing something in a spot that maybe was moved, but you are so used to seeing it there, YOU do see it momentarily.
This painting has been good therapy for me.
It's been a long winter...already.
