After spending a three week vacation/field trip to Florida, it's time to get back to some serious work in the studio. Although I have been very busy with many tasks and chores at home and in the studio both prior to and after my trip, it can be overwhelming to actually sit down and simply paint for any period of time. It will take some training to get my mind into that "creative mode" once again and leave all my distractions behind and prioritize and delegate items on that to-do list!
So I bit the bullet this afternoon and finally put on some music, sat at my easel and started working on this new dog portrait. I will divulge more details about how I came to paint his piece at a later date but for now, I can share the work in progress.
