One of the best things about painting from life is being able to hold my mixed clour right up to the area I'm trying to match. I appreciate the strict answer I get back each time. It either works or it doesn't.
Tonight I was thinking about friends, my cat, my husband, solar panels, my mountain bike ride, the book I'm listening too, and all the horrible things that happen in the world everyday. Being home and being in my studio is an excess of priviledge, comfort and safety. Of which I am extremely thankful and wish it was easier to share with those who need it.
