Have you ever wanted to paint something that didn’t necessarily fit together? That was me with this painting. Horses running through a poppy field. It would never happen, but I just wanted to paint it anyway. No one in their right mind would allow their field of poppies to be ruined by horses, especially if they are a farmer like me. However, the painter in me really wanted to paint it… I could see the colors, the young foal and her mother just frolicking at sunset in the poppies. I really wanted to make it happen and isn’t that what being a painter is about making the unreal, real. Or as real as a painting can be? This painting isn't finished I still have a great deal of detail work to do on the horses, I need to bring them to life as it were but I like to put work here that I am working on so you can see my process as it were. So today this is what I am working on. Thanks for coming by so you can see where I am in the world.
I am wishing that I could be out walking with my dogs. I am truly missing my walks; the great outdoors is calling me. For those who have not been keeping up with the Blog I have broken my leg and I have been confined to crutches for now. I am 4 weeks in… SIGH!!! For the longest time my leg was not healing. But good news the leg is now showing signs of healing and I am on the road to recovery.
Living on a 4 wheel road has it’s advantages but not with a broken leg. The lavender farm in winter is at rest so I am painting away and working on the business side of things for my ART business and the business of the farm. I am seeing to healing and learning all I can learn about selling art and putting lavender sachet together for the gallery and getting more paintings done for shows the gallery and online sales. It is good to learn and grow in all thing’s art and farming! Life is good.
