It is finally beginning to happen...every day I move closer to actually putting brush to canvas! I now have a simple still life set up and feeling that rush of anticipation to actually start. Putting aside the continuing pain of my stupid ankle, leg, foot thing is much more possible when I'm focused on something else. (I do think I may have to revisit a doctor if this isn't feeling better in a week or so).
I'm going to use a limited palette and keep the design simple, on a small canvas (5x7). Working from the still life direct, not photos will also stimulate my thinking processes. This jug has been a favorite subject off and on for a couple of years. Once this is completed I should be well on my way to larger, more challenging stuff again. Just deciding today which lighting to use.
It amazes me how easily and quickly the muse can disappear and how hard it can be to coax her back.
