I'm working on a series of mixed media portraits on canvas. This is a large piece (for me) 18x24. I've been fussing with her for days and need to step back and take a break. (Thank goodness for gesso that's all I can say!)
Surprisingly, taking a photo of the work makes it easier for me to find her flaws rather than just looking at the original work. I'm not sure why that is...
Being a woman of a certain age, somewhere along the line I became invisible. At least it often seems that way. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I don't recognize myself - I see my mother - the years are creeping up I guess...or maybe I'm just having a bad day.
No, Zentangle is NOT a Argentine tango... If you want to know what Zentangle is, go here. I'm quite new to the art. My first steps are not very sophisticated. (This art form takes a lot more time than one would think. People always tell me I must have a lot of patience to quilt - zentangle takes a lot more patience IMO.)
It's one of those days where my hands ache so bad I could weep. TMB (too many birthdays!) degenerative arthritis - on top of that I caught my husband's cold! I'm trying working through my discomfort because keeping my mind off of it usually helps. What do you do to get past the pain?
