Since I crashed last night on the couch way too early....sorta like a pre-sleep nap, well then, I got up way too early this morning and finished this painting I started Saturday with my friend Susan.
Sometimes I have trouble going back to an unfinished painting. Something about the inspiration is lost. The spontaneity of creating is lost and has to be found again. But yesterday I brought the unfinished painting to this desk and put it through my "stare" procedure. So I was ready this morning to go with it.
Morning ART always makes me happy.


  1. i love the freedom in this one. it was a treat to look at the details when i clicked on the photo. you rock, sharon. thank you for continual inspiration.

  2. She's lovely! I really like the colors on this one!

  3. She is lovely! Funny I was up last night at 3 a.m I just couldn't sleep so I got up and played in my art journals and some muslin too! I love how you've created this piece. I love all the little details!

  4. Sharon, I'm so happy to know that someone else uses the "stare" technique! I suppose that staring long enough helps to bring focus. Whatever makes it work, I find it quite helpful at times.

  5. Isn't she beautiful, to wear a bow like that is very creative on her part. I like with window and the circles behind it. Since the red moon I have had circles on my mind, your influence of course.
    Circles and fabric can get difficult at times to keep things flat, but I work at it.

    It is good to come here and have my day be more interesting.

  6. She looks great.. I so enjoy the morning art you do.


  7. Sharon, so glad you are painting in the early morning....means you are feeling better...YEA!!! And, this one IS important! pat

  8. she is so fresh!
    'important' is a perfect sentiment to attach with her
    looks like you picked up where you left off just fine!

  9. I don't think I've used the "stare" technique but I often plan things out in my head for ages and when I actually execute them they go pretty fast.

  10. Love the colours!!! Love this *important* piece Sharon. Morning art... I like the idea (but I must make myself get up that bit earlier. Dont know if I am that disciplined).

    Love the birds in the earlier post too. How wonderful to have humming birds in your garden.
