Short and Sweet

Today’s post will be short and sweet, or short at least.

Today I worked at the job that buys my paints, which is cleaning houses.  I had surgery exactly one week ago today, and maybe that is why today wore me out so much.

After work all I could do is crawl into bed for a couple of hours.  I couldn’t sleep though, and just rested in the dark with my eyes closed.

Obviously, painting was out of the question, as is a long blog post.

So today I will just share a work I did some time back.  I haven’t taken time to upload it to this new website yet, but it is on my Fine Art America page.  It’s title is “Butterfly on Thistle”, (quite an imaginative name, isn’t it?)

Anyway, the original is a small piece, 5×7 on back stapled stretched canvas.  I felt that I did a pretty good job capturing the detail of this tiny creature.  This is one of the few pieces I did that I was completely happy with when I finished, I didn’t feel that I would change anything if I could.

What does it have to do with my day today?  Oh, I don’t know.  Maybe its just about finding a touch of beauty even among the “thorns and thistles” of a tough day.

    Hey, Vickie. Sorry your day hasn’t been a good one. I do like your butterfly painting! Better days ahead! 🙂

  2. Your painting is beautiful. I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well, I hope you start to feel better soon. A week after surgery and already back to work, good job! But don’t forget to rest so you can get back all of your energy!

    • Thanks Jacqueline, it wasn’t a major surgery, but maybe it took more out of me than I thought! At any rate, I am sure I’ll feel better tomorrow.

  3. Admiring the persistence you put into your blog and in depth information you present.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Great read!
