It was interesting paining this crusty King (King William). He is not the friendliest as you can see. He has come to life now surrounded by the greenery, I kept it simple and antiqued looking. My job was fun - what a talented artist who ever did the design- many many moons ago.
While painting I do much thinking. It was on my kitchen table so I could walk around it as it is TOO heavy to move, letting Tequila and Scruffy in and out and them watching me paint. As with drawing I am able to lose myself in painting.
Photo below.. one of those things that should be seen live ;-) it returns to it's owner on Wed.
I went to bed last night and did NOT cry myself to sleep for the first time in over a week. Time.
I'm going today to start another painting for me and I'm going to paint something positive and uplifting - My good friend Kat is going to frame it and I am going to donate it (sell tickets via my site and Kats Gallery) All proceeds will to to our local food bank. We are here for a reason. To make the world a better place. How ever you can you must try.
As soon as the drawing is done I will post it.
Another note.. My friend Cathy and I had a good cry. One of my best friends.. we walked the dogs many times over the past years. She loved Hunny as if she were he own.
I get by with a little help from my friends.
Thank YOU - You know who you are.
