"IT'S A BALANCING ACT"

8x8, oil on 3/8 panel, $100.00
I enjoyed painting this colorful still life.  Still life set up is lots of fun for me.  I often think about my life and how these objects relate to me or inspire my painting.  Sometimes it is not the object, but more , a thought and I use the items selected to create a visual for me.  I am so much better when I think with a picture in my head to back up the thought.  So this is about keeping it together...finding balance.  Balance is so important in my life.  Without it I tend to fall over.   It really is a balancing act and I need juggling lessons.
