Oppede-le-Vieux and painting

11.5 x 11" - acrylic on paper - $65

Wow, four months have passed since my last post....painting after arm and shoulder injuries has been a trial but things are improving. I have said this before, prematurely, but I see some light, Yeah!

It's a case of 'balance' in every meaning of the word: physical, mental, emotional and when it comes to the 'act of painting' - deciding where and how to position the surface (paper or canvas) so that one's neck and painting arm/hand are not stressed. And of course restricting the amount of time spent painting, which for me is really hard. I am not one of those people who need to do laundry or clean house before painting, LOL. 

At this point I need to paint 'small' and in shorter bursts of time which I think is helping to stay loose and painterly. This work is based on many photos from some plein air painting time in a sweet little village called Oppede-le-Vieux in Provence. And I had fun, as you can probably tell, with the palette. 
I am really happy with this one, and hope you like it too!
Have a great day.
