I think when you read the other blog today it will be obvious why I added the painting I did. Not the complete still life of the tale but at least the symbol of love and care part of it. This was one of my very early paintings. I was going to say when I was still wondering what to paint and trying all sorts of things but it dawned on me that I am still at that stage. I still do not have a clue what I should be painting. Some people tell me to stick to the abstracts, others say do seascapes. I have a feeling I will always be like a bumble bee flitting from one thing to another. Somebody commented yesterday on my lack of lessons. I am sure I would be able to get my head in order with a few of those but the trouble is I just cannot for the life of me paint when I am in company. That is not exactly true I was once asked to paint as a demonstration of abstract art and that I enjoyed. That of course was all planned. I just cannot sit and be creative with others even watching me.
This was painted on a canvas using acrylic paint. I was one of my very early sales being bought by somebody seeing me about to hang it. I did another very similar which I gave to a charity group who sold it and gained a fair amount for their funds. So although it is far from wonderful it has done some good and brought some joy. Kind of mission accomplished
Between the two blogs I have shown both versions of this painting very similar but not exact.
