Starting to Paint again ~

 Since I am on Hold for Spinning yarn....
Decided to finally start working on one of the black canvass.

Have some new acrylic paints, so will be a bit of a learning curve.  They do not dry as fast as other Acrylics, which is nice.

Just did the back ground at this point, as that is all I am up to doing at this moment.
Maybe 20 minutes, there abouts.

Is seriously nice to have paint on fingers, shirt....basically all over the place again !

I know I said." I wasn't going to do any more Icelandic Horse paintings because of past and current issues"
 but I might do one of Dyfra and after, one of Maggie.
Miss them both a lot.
Not really motivated to do anything else.

Hence the Dark background, matches both my mood and shows off white horses....
OK... most know the shades of grey Dyfra loved to add... but with the magic of paint....  POOF she is a clean white.  LOL..

 Painting is very therapeutic.

Sketch I did of the photo I took of Dyfra, with 
my Cannon camera.

The lovely shades of Forest dirt.

Gesso ~

Feel the need to create Art but what to do when ones body does not want to play nice?

Well for a start, paint black Gesso on a couple of canvases.
They need to be sanded and one more layer applied.
Then I need to figure out what I want to paint on them.

Usually not at a loss as to what to paint, this time I am. 

So I do a landscape, Abstract, or ?

Pencil Art ~

Decided to hold off working on Rose's painting and work on the pencil Eye and Face of Dyfra, 
that still needs to be completed. 
Doesn't look like an hours worth of work though.

I Kind'a had help.
Rose had to come see what I was doing, She layed down very close to me and held my hand in her paws a few times... then would fall asleep... I would choose another pencil and again she held my hand and fell back asleep....... swear she was trying to make me take a nap.

She always knows when I have trouble breathing and tries her best to make me better.

Pen and Ink chicken ~

One of my Dark Brahma chickens...  
Have to say, she would make a great Pen and Ink painting...  

If her feathers do not start making me dizzy that is.
