SOLD

I’m back to posting new paintings again after a terribly long break. It was anything but a “vacation” though. My father had a major stroke last February. This left him bedridden and dependent on my Mom, brother and me for almost everything. We dropped everything we were doing as the hospital became our home for a while. I did plan on doing some pencil drawings there, but I couldn’t find the energy nor the interest to do anything. Unfortunately, this went on for a good while after we were back home again. It took some time for us to adjust to the new schedules, duties and lifestyle. I can’t say we’ve finally settled down, but I did manage to start painting again several weeks ago.

I have lots to catch up on, but it feels good to be back again.

I love painting marbles. We have them in other colors too, but most of the time, I find myself choosing a blue marble over all the other colors.

Since today is Independence Day in America, I wish to greet all Americans a Happy Fourth of July!

Today is also a very special day for me because, like the title says, this is also my blog’s first anniversary! I should have posted the 365th daily painting around this time, but since I wasn’t able to keep my schedule, it will come a little (or a lot!) later than I expected. We’ll see though. I may have some more to say come the day I post that 365th painting, but for now, I just want to say THANK YOU! once again to all of you who visit my blog, those who enjoy my paintings, those who take time to send me their comments — you are all very special to me! Thank you!

Just a very simple painting today. I’ve always liked marbles. I love the different highlights they have when light hits them. I wonder what those colored things are that they put inside.
