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.
