|Study of flowers and twilight sky, by Hilary J. England|
12" x 16", oil on canvas, 2012
I am looking forward to the Parallax AF in NYC on November 16-18. Should be an amazing fair, and I am really excited to meet new and exciting people. I have been putting together my work for the show, and also working on lots of new stuff, but have been having a lot of distractions with annoying little stuff, but I shoulder through it. My back has really been bothering me, even with my new mattress, and so I have cut my cross training down and will try some less intense stuff, maybe yoga, instead. I am just so sick of having a hurting neck and back, that if I could swap out bodies, I would, LOL.
I am thoroughly wired on green tea today, and despite the driving rain, I've gotten a lot of stuff done, which is good. Maybe I can relax later, after all, it's supposed to be my "day off" today. Funny, that never seems to happen. I'm ALWAYS "working," even when I'm sleeping. How tiresome sometimes.
So, I have to go out and papier mache my new sculpture, finish working on a commissioned artwork, and I was hoping to squeeze a run in later, but this rain seems to be relentless, so I may have to skip that idea.
I hope you enjoy this quick study. I really have been enjoying mixing colors and doing color studies, and twilight skies really present an interesting way to continue with my color drills. I do enjoy them...they make me dream of good things to come, and hope for the next day. Hey, that's all any of us can really hope for anyway.
