"A Stoop in Brooklyn"
6" x 6"
oil on Raymar canvasboard
I about hit the wall today, so to speak. Got out to the studio late -
tried to get a 12" x 16" going
(too big for one day, and I knew it)
and realized that I wouldn't get done by dark.
I had it going, too - different subject altogether.
It may be that one that I work on daily
and get done within the 30 days.
So I scrambled - and I mean scrambled.
This one isn't exactly the way I wanted it.
I seem to having difficulty bringing things UP into the light
and it is my nemesis - mixing colors - lately.
Plus, I really need to get into the habit of CLEANING off my palette each
day and starting NEW.
I seem to rely on YESTERDAY'S colors.
That would probably help.
That's just plain lazy and trying to be thrifty, I guess.
In the end, this one works for me!
And BTW - I am working on NOT complaining.
My daughter and her family lived in Brooklyn for several years -
she did a floral designer job there among other things.
Their stoop was a bright spot in the concrete jungle
with her lovingly cared for - plants ~
a definite INVITING SPACE!

Last night dreaming about happening upon a retirement for a 'Bezel Designer'
while trying to find the location of an RV park.
Don't know where that bezel thing came from, I barely know the word 'bezel',
in fact, in the dream, I asked them to clarify, "bevel or bezel"????
And she and I talked about how it was to design - by hand, manually
and how it was to design by computer.
And I am sharing this with you, as when I paint like this, in a frenzy,
I have very vivid, wild dreams.
