My sister and nieces, hence the title "Loved Ones." It's fun how the title came as I painted this; actually, the title was with me while I painted this.
Again, still painting every single day. I am learning from this daily painting challenge that I do best to let a painting take several painting sessions, which is very valuable learning for me. I tend to want to get to the finish, carrying on painting when I should STOP and let the paint and my mind gel for awhile, even overnight. I am developing habits and knowledge about myself as a painter that will serve me well.
I experimented with acrylic mediums for this painting. The jury is still out...
I went to a presentation at the Appalachian Pastel Society and learned some very valuable things, including that my photo editing program, Picasa, will never do everything I need it to do, so I can stop looking for the controls I will never find because they don't exist. I learned about a couple of other programs that would serve me better, so here I stand with another new project!
I hope the other artists are still enjoying the challenge!
