I'm not a texter. My cell phone is an ancient one that makes phone calls and that's about it. No internet on it, so I haven't really ever gotten into the whole short textspeak, and usually, U for "you" annoys the heck out of me.
I made an exception in this case. Today's painting begged for this title. It's actually I <3 U, but this blog wouldn't let me do that. (The blog is anti-text?) If you're looking at it, you can see why. It's fairly obvious. :) Then there's the fact that it's a friend's kitty, whom I met and know only online. Gotta love this modern age where we know people a million miles away from us better than we know the people next door. But I digress.
Since it's January and most people have made resolutions to exercise more to get into shape, I've decided to 'exercise' painting more, to get myself into shape with that. Pastel is by far my most comfy medium that I'm right at home with. But it is limited, especially when it comes to keeping it around unframed. Or when wanting to do a fairly large painting. While it CAN be done, it's just far nicer to have a....how should we say....more 'rough'n'tumble' proof medium like acrylics to be able to use when we want to. SO this is my exercising. Four days into the new year and I'm still here!
Enjoy this new piece, which I started yesterday and finished today. If you'd like to see it as it progressed in stages, be sure to stop by my Facebook page where I post pics of these Works in Progress (WIP's).
