Just Picked!

Well tomorrow is the big day to find out if any of the paintings make it into the Fall Art at the Mill show (Millwood, VA).  Just realized that the name of this painting and the timing of the jury results is a bit of a play on words.  I hope all of them get "picked." Fingers crossed!

This painting has more objects in it than anything I've ever even thought about painting.  Pretty intimidating for a 6x6 inch, just a couple of simple objects, kind of artist. . . .  I tend to get bored with a painting and just want to finish it, but learning that part of the joy is taking your time, moving around the subject matter, revisiting things, and finally bringing the painting together.  Being a "creative" is much more of a journey than I expected, but rather delightful to have the opportunity and time to finally pursue it.
