Eleven Marbles Down, Eighteen to Go!
...And this isn't even the final layer!
Nope! There are still another TWO layers to go on some of these marbles once this pass is done and I need to work considerably more on those shadows too. But it's great to get the foundations down and it's good to get my teeth into something big again.
Anyway, here's a peak at my progress so far...
...In other news, even my Husband is getting inspired on my behalf these days... He had a great idea for a painting over the weekend and all because of a minor mishap in the kitchen! I'm not giving it away just yet, but it's a really cool idea and I'm excited to play around with it when this one is complete.
I don't know about you, but I find it all too easy to forget an idea that I've had for a painting. So, these days I have a whiteboard on my studio wall. Now every time I have a moment of inspiration, I write it down so I don't forget it. Of course some of them never get used, but plenty do. Right now I have 8 things on the list, 3 of which I have already done; 'One for the Road', 'Escapees' and 'Evidence'. It's scary to think that these ideas could have been forgotten and may never have made it to the easel had I not have written them down on my whiteboard!
Meanwhile, I am still getting comments on my previous blog. I think it's going to take a while for people to realise I've moved! But I know that some of you are here and if you are one of those who happens to have a link to my blog on your sidebar (thank you), don't forget to change it :0)
And have I remembered to add your blog to mine? Let me know if you're not on there!
Q. So, what's on YOUR easel right now?
