This is my second painting in this series, but frankly, I’m worried. Am I spinning a little too much?
Since I’ve started this series:
1. A plastic lawn chair spit out from under me at a horse show (yes, I know I need to lose weight).
2. Pulled my shoulder badly – though it’s better now.
3. Had a pair of pointy decoupage scissors drop point-first into a vein on my foot, leaving blood all over my studio while I applied pressure until hubby could come to the rescue.
4. Dropped and broke a watering can that I’ve had for decades,
5. Been bitten by something that has left a honking bump and red mark on my shoulder.
6. Smashed the same shoulder I hurt earlier while rushing around the corner in the hallway…..guess it moved a bit since the last time I went that way.
I’ll admit to feeling a dash of craziness/dizziness during this transition from “safe” job to “life” job. How could I not? The possibilities for the day ahead are endless!
The reference photo for this painting was of a calm, know-his-job gelding who performed his spins like ballet. Practiced, perfect, fast but focused.
Another lesson from my art?
