Kiosk at Sunrise
Did another painting today, which makes me extremely happy. I have been really busy the last week or so doing paintings for Christmas presents and the very last one I did, for a very dear friend, turned out GROSS.
I was so disappointed that I stayed away from the brush for a while.
Finally I told her, "I did a painting for you and it really sucks," and I felt so much better afterwards that I started painting again.
The moral of the story? If something sucks, admit it! Shout it from the fecking rooftops! You'll feel EVER so much happier!
This painting, by the way, was inspired by a photo I took a couple years ago at Kiosk, at sunrise, in the northern part of Algonquin Park. We used to go there every spring and every fall for fishing trips. It's a gorgeous place, desolate and wildly beautiful, and I miss it like crazy. (It's available for purchase at my Etsy shop.)
By the way, I can't show you the sucky one because apparently my friend still wants to receive its suckiness for Christmas. So it has to be a SURPRISE SUCK, if you get my drift.
Geez that sounded bad ...
