7 x 5
oil on canvas
All last week I was in a paint-slump. Even though I had a head full of loose ideas for painting subjects, I couldn't gather any momentum for actually starting one. It's like having a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. Then yesterday, the switch flipped and I painted this little flower arrangement and the little dog portrait just posted. Both are small, but successful in achieving what I was after, in this case to capture the texture and sparkle of light coming through a crystal vase.
