Needless to say, I had NOT felt like painting. I just started today, after not doing any art for a month. I am starting a large commission for some friends, of a yellow lab. But I am doing the smart thing, and starting with at least one color study before I tackle the full size. Below are photos of Carmella, and the small study I did today. I would very much appreciate some brutally honest criticism.

I have had a BAD month, ending up in emergency twice within a week. I had a very miserable flu that would not leave me alone. And then yesterday. I thought I would do something constructive, and clean the eaves troughs. I was almost done, when the ladder decided to lose its grip, and I rode it in slow motion to the ground. Basically, I was all right, just shaken up, but I did need twenty stitches in my right shin. Ah, well ... never a dull moment.
