Hi all! It was a very warm and sunny day here in Virginia Beach and I enjoyed it to the fullest. I took advantage of the temperature to do some oil painting outside; the fumes from the terpentine/terpenoid kill me, so I have to wait til it's nice outside.
I started a Frida Khalo piece several years ago and have been too big of a chicken to take my brush back to the canvas and finish her. We got pretty far today though (she and I), and when I repainted the background a deeper, darker shade of blue, the whole thing just popped! I'm now very excited to finish her...she is looking quite lovely.
I also got a lot of inspiration today from stopping by the Richard Stravitz Gallery right here (virtually) next to my house and seeing so many wonderful compositions. Richard Stravitz does a large portion of the sculpture, and there are oil and various media of painting on both floors. Look them up online and take a little ride over there if you're local. It's worth it!
And then....Take a moment to enjoy your life...that's mucho importanto!!!
