It is Thursday, isn't it

Scroll down to see the WIP of this portrait. Of course it is a FAKE according to Professor Doctor Tad Keys.  I enjoyed painting this and tried very hard to just paint the bold strokes of color in the impressionist style.  I hope to do it again but with out looking at a reference from the past.  And I'm sure I will have time for that now that I am home all day and not at that dang-desk-in-town.

Speaking of retirement, it only took me one week to become discombobulated with what day of the week it is. I LOVE THAT!  DH told me he was going to till the garden tomorrow morning and in my confused state I ask him if he was going to do that before going to the office. He told me he wouldn't be going to the office on Saturday. I said, "it is Thursday, isn't it?"

  4. She's lovely! I've been trying to paint in a more impressionist style... Haven't been able to let the detail go though... At least I'm leaving brushstrokes and my art is looking more "painterly" now.
