I just don't feel a strong direction. Life creeps in and clouds my mind. Painting is a wonderful escape for me and I find it disturbing when my happy place gets cluttered. So I've been thinking I need to take a short break from painting to clear and take care of things. Kind of like spring cleaning. I just know as soon as I have a few things done I will be back on track.

Me And My Shadow 6x6 oil
Someone told me to paint a pear when you don't know what to do. So here is a pear on a plate. It was a little frustrating trying to get started. I have been letting myself wipe off and start over when I just don't feel it is going well. So this was a second start. I was down to very little time and just put it out and painted it fast. I was not happy with it, which has been my general feeling about a lot of things lately. I ended up liking the painting the next day and it is always fun to see it on my blog. Time and evaluation is important.
