Finally A New Pembroke Welsh Corgi Painting

I have neglected this blog way too long. My painting has been off the last several months and I thought I would try again to see what happens. Unlike other people, painting does not come easy for me. In fact, it can be a real struggle to have anything come out. I recently tried my hand at abstract with miserable results. I use to think abstract was easy. All you had to do with throw paint down on paper and that was it. Now I realize you have to know something about design and placement of things. I'm a very detailed oriented person and I think that could be a hinderance. All I know is how to paint what is in front of me and to visualize in abstract is completely foreign to my way thinking. Still, I want to keep trying. For now, I went back and painted the familiar so here is "Nap Time", portrait of a corgi.

I'm just glad everything is okay! How are you? Last I remember you were remodeling your bedroom and bathroom I think, and then poof! You were gone. I love your paintings, I am really surprised that it's difficult for you, they are wonderful.

Welcome back!
