So Long Summer

This painting began as a challenge. To work on one painting for fifteen days. Of course, it went beyond the fifteen days. At first it was a struggle to paint that long because I do not really paint that long on one painting.

After fighting with it, using colors I don't normally use, covering them back up, and just getting mad and making marks out of frustration, I finally hit a point I began to like it and the process. Mind you, I'll not do a fifteen day thing again. I just can't work that long on one piece, but I will definitely try to go beyond my comfort zone.


Here are some close up of some of the "sweet spots". And yes, there are some sparkle to the yellow because I threw in some white glitter for fun.


And I used my favorite mark maker, a gold oil stick.
