Like it? Last January I painted the one down below there but I’ve been looking at it recently and thinking it was missing something. A theme lately. My paintings all get nervous and worried when I line them up and start looking them over. Who’s next???
Today felt like it was the day to go back and take another run at this one, using the looser brush strokes I’ve been playing with. What do you think? Better? I think it is, and as I write that I’m wondering if I would post it if I went back and worked on one and it turned into a stinker. Hmmm. Have to think about that. I want to say yes. Sort of.
But I think this one is better now, although I do like the paint bits on the handles in the old one. In better light I may go back and try to re-add some of that. It’s certainly more representative of my brushes. I should be hauled in for cruelty to brushes. They spend most of their life sitting in dirty paint water because I’m …. wait for it…… going to be right back to paint some more! Sometimes for days I’m going to be right back. All the paint on the handles cracks off. Scandalous treatment. I don’t mind how scruffy they look though. I’m more comfortable around scruffy I think.
