painting again

Good Grief! I didn’t realize its been over 2 months since I’ve painted! Shame on me. I could say life got in the way but that is no excuse.

Anyway, here is another small canvas Trying to Contain the Anger.  This is the first layer. Generally pleased with it. Have some anatomical adjustments  to do but that is the beauty of oil. Mess it up and one can just paint over it, wet into wet for me.

I feel good when I paint. If something is bothering me, if I am obsessing over things, I can paint. And I calm down. No, the problems are the same but I am seeing them differently. My mind is engaged with painting problems, with seeing, with feeling. And what I was obsessing about just isn’t that important anymore.
