Dear March - Come in!
by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
March is probably my favorite month. At least it was when I lived in Interior AK. Longer days, sunny days, warmer days, green stuff just coming up or sprouting out ...
I just found this poem and I feel like I should be posting a landscape ...
but that will have to wait. I'm working on a still life!
And, fyi: one good way, to all you procrastinator-painters out there
- to get your butt in gear and paint,
instead of doing laundry, changing the oil in the car or washing the dishes ...
... simply blog about your progress. Yep, that's it. It helps propel.
Ok, so here is my still life set-up.
(If anyone knows what kind of daisies these are please let me know?)
Above is the charcoal sketch-in, on a brightly colored gessoed ground.
Charcoal set with alcohol.
