I'm still in the middle of a project at the moment, so here's a flower to be going on with in celebration of this year's Summer Solstice. :o)
You see I'm currently working on an illustration I've been struggling with for a while. It's the idea that's been difficult rather than the drawing. Once I get excited by an idea, it's pure joy to make the picture but this has been a while in coming. It's almost as though my mind comes up against a brick wall with each idea I have. The article is about food and I tried out various ideas but became so bored with them that I've now abandoned any thoughts of drawing pies or mashed potato and now ending up with something completely different! The main thing is that I'm enjoying it and I think that if you're bored with a painting, it'll show somehow. I'll post it later when the paint's dry.
The Summer Solstice marks the longest day and shortest night of the entire year. This season has a way of shedding light on stubborn problems, causing them to wither up and die. The clean space that remains enables new life to take root. (Stephanie Dempsey)
