10"x8" acrylic on canvas
For the first time this season we awoke to snow everywhere and I was able to do some shoveling. I know it sounds crazy but I really like shoveling. I think because it gives me a feeling of accomplishment so easily. When I start shoveling I know that it will end and then on to the next thing.
Painting is different in that once I start I don't have a concrete idea when I'll be done. After I've been painting for awhile on a piece I get a sense of when it might be done, but not like shoveling. I know on days when it is snowing non-stop you could say those are days when shoveling is like painting.
I need to make some adjustments to Assata's right side to add a little size to her shoulder, but other than that I'm happy with the way this is turning out. I think tomorrow will be spent creating the beach beneath her, so she may or may not change at all tomorrow.
Only time will tell.
