  • 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.
