Comfort Zone, WIP, collage/acrylic, 22 x 28, by Elizabeth W. Seaver
Back and blogging. What a difficult transition from lazing in bed until 8, rising to play cards, shop and eat Mexican food, back to the daily grind of painting every day (anybody feel sorry for me???) Seriously, though, I was a little while finding my groove again, so it has taken me longer to get back to my blog than I expected. I am really looking forward to seeing what you all have been doing for the last two weeks.
Before I left for Houston, I had begun what I plan to be my last four large pieces for the June/July show. This is the first one of those four that I have worked on, and you can see that I am not finished yet. I will paint the umbrella and the daiquiri glass and continue to work on lights and shadows, among other things. Don't forget to click on the image to enlarge and see detail. Look for the place where I changed my mind about how to do the sunglasses!
I plan to finish these four in April and spend May working on publicity, varnishing and framing. Somewhere in there I will squeeze in time to paint on smaller works to add in nooks and crannies. There! My goal is stated, and I'm accountable. The race is on.
