Restless Roots

Happy is she who has been able to paint the last few days without too many interruptions!
I have always been fascinated with the process my mind goes through to arrive at an idea that leads to a painting. I suppose this is what this painting is about, ideas and choices. Like a plant sending down shoots into the soil, tenderly feeling it's way looking for sustenance.
I include pictures taken in differing light, as I wanted to get the photos as close to the actual color as possible. I used some metallic paint and it was really hard to get it to show the true shade.
The top photo is outdoors in natural light and the second is indoors under a bright light. This is a close-up of the details.
Oh well between Blogger, my camera, and the weather it is a miracle I was able to post anything at all!


I wish everyone a blessed Memorial Day and a stress free weekend....

    Blogger has sure had a lot of problems this weekend, looks like we have our followers back, but I know people are still having problems posting and commenting.

  7. She is wonderful!!! So glad you are finding creative time. I have not been. Oh well, everything has a season. Did you get over your phobia yet? So hard... I sympathize. I was just diagnosed with high blood sugar so I am working on that (which means little carbs and sugar as you well know - yuck...). But like you said - things could be worse.
