This is of two old barrel halfs in our backyard. The grass I was neglecting overgrew around them and soon it looked like they had always been there. It cradled the two and it was beautiful in the morning light.

Yeah, I know I've been MIA. Sorry, had a two week rut there. Paintings weren't working for me and I had to take a break. It's funny to see I can still get demotivated by a few setbacks. But not for too long I like to think. Anyhoo I'm painting again.

So nice and sunny!
I'm glad you're back. I think we all missed you, but a break is good now and then.
Just wanted to let you know that I tagged you on my blog. Feel free to tag or not as you wish. Don't want to keep you from your painting.

We are all so self critical and it's had not to compare ourselves with each other. One step forward, two steps back ;)
This is nice and loose.

Thanks! It's good to be back. Being away from painting is like being away from home for too long.
