It felt so good, to set up yesterday – take my paints out, tape down the paper, fill the water – just go through the process. I’ve missed it. I’ve painted only sporadically during the holiday season. Setting up is kind of a calming.
I had no idea what I wanted to paint, I just knew I wanted to get back into it. Penguins popped into my head, and orange sunset skies. I looked online for some reference photos and found a great one tagged #penguinlove. I wish I could find the photographer of the inspiration photo. It’s so awesome, I can’t really take credit for the painting. I usually try to take my own reference photos, but there aren’t any penguins here in NY!
How’s your year starting out? Have you starting on your resolution? 🙂

This is so cool and I love the contrasting colors. Great shapes too. They look so happy together. :))
Thank you Laura! As I said it’s an amazing reference photo.
Thanks Jodi 🙂
