Coming Together 

  
Coming Together is not only the name of this painting, but also how I feel. 

When my husband, Warren, retired in July, 2015, my blogging took a backseat. I had always read other blogs each day at lunch. Then, I started eating lunch with Warren. 

Soon after his retirement, I also started to not blog my art. 

Blogging fell into the background and almost disappeared. 

I have spent the last few months trying to get back to blogging. 

I really miss my many friends I made through blogging. 

When I started this blog, I made a commitment to always blog my paintings. Well, I was way behind. 

But this post almost catches me up. I know my blogs have been less than interesting. The paintings I’ve posted are so old, I forgot my exact journey through them. 

But no more. 

I remember my journey through this painting. I finished it two months ago. 

I started it in Rebelle with watercolors. I wanted a painting with lots of drips. 

Then I took it into Painter and worked on it as an abstract. 

I am switching between abstracts and what I’m calling abstract florals in my paintings. 

I wanted to start putting more textures in my abstracts. So I focused on that. 

As I worked, most of the drips I had made disappeared. So at the end, I put the painting back in Rebelle and added the dark drips.

    Kerry, your work is mesmerizing. I got lost in your art just looking and looking. I am glad you are back on track with your Dreams and why you do what you do. At times Life can really pull us off course, yet within that time, hopefully we have learned something to actually add to our art when we circle back to it. At least that is how it works with me. Welcome back!!! Love, Amy ❤

        I’m @amyrosepetals. I’ll make sure I follow you on Instagram, Kerry. I haven’t been there for a few days. I’ll make a note to make sure I follow you though. You are very welcome for the follow. I could have sworn I was following your when you were blogging. The WP phantom must have been up to her tricks again. LOL ❤

    I love your artwork, Kerry, glad you’re back on the art/blogging road again. Mind you, sometimes we need cul-de-sacs and side trips to take a recuperative break.

    Glad to have you back. Although, it is good to take a break once and while. Missed you, Kerry!
