Took me two days of working on this one. I thought all was lost when I started this morning. I've had so many distractions this week with the ice/snow going on and the city being shut down and the family all stuck inside together. Until I had absolute quiet for most of today, I didn't realize what an impact on my art they had. I don't want to say it's negative having them around but it definitely affects my attention to the work and the ability to get lost in the work.
I keep thinking I want to call this painting "The Art Critic" because not only is he an amazing artist at just 14, he's pretty good at critiquing work as well - and that's a good thing. Honest critiques are important. His first comment when he saw it was "not bad". Well, thank you. I love you, too! He did point out a couple of things for me to think about. Maybe tomorrow.
Painting dogs, children, trees, clouds, roads, flowers, flowers, and more flowers all in hot southern Louisiana!
