Jubilee

SOLD


Jubilee is one of a series of paintings I'm doing on 8X8 finished edge canvases that will be hung without frames. Sometimes I like to paint on these small canvases while I'm working up my courage to confront a larger project. Sometimes I clean the whole house in order to avoid starting on a large painting. When I'm really hitting the wall and trying to hide from that big canvas sitting on my easel, I go in search of chocolate. Chocolate may not solve any painting challenges, but it always makes everything better.

Another beautiful painting Nancy! Chocolate and house cleaning...... mmmm...... sounds like a good way to put off that big canvas...... the chocolate anyway!

Laundry. I always do laundry when I paint - well not exactly at the same time, but to take quick breaks while I paint.
This may explain the mysterious stains on those shirts...
Beautiful work Nancy!

Hi Nancy, I LOVE your paintings ... especially the geraniums and the hydrangea ... breathtaking!

My husband says he can always tell when I'm engaged in "art avoidance" activities, like cleaning off the top of the fridge or suddenly deciding that all of our books need to be arranged by subject. And rearranging all the spare light bulbs in the cupboard by increasing wattage is a dead giveaway. :)

I look forward to seeing your next large piece!

Chocolate never fails.
Also, try listening to a book on tape while you paint.. it keeps your mind busy so your hands can do what they need to. ;-)

It's beautiful! I can't believe you avoid your canvas. You have been painting one a day!! You mean you can do more? Amazing.

I bought 2 different kinds of chocolate ice cream last night. One is Moose Tracks, the other is Pecan Turtle Fudge. I never buy ice cream but I had to have it last night. Anytime is a good time for chocolate! And I don't even paint! Just admire yours, so gorgeous!

Chocolate... I should add that to the supplies I take out painting then if I get stuck or frustrated at least I'll have chocolate. Mmmm...

Very pretty painting! I'd love to see a shot of this hanging on the wall. It's fun to see the scale and I'm curious to see how the edges are finished.
