I have been sidetracked lately and unable to focus on art or much else for some reason. But I feel like I'm back in business. Sometimes you just have to step away from what you are doing. Here is something I'm working on now. It's a painting and has a few more hours of work before its completed. I had a different color scheme going and maybe that is what put me off. The colors were not working together and it was taking entirely too many layers for my gold paint to look, well, like gold. So I opted to forgo the gold paint and instead am using a bright poppy red. I think I'm pleased with how this is shaping up now. Here is a little corner of the painting... let me know what you think!
