You should have taken a video! We would have loved to have seen it!

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

whenever i finish a painting i spent alot of hrs into i feel kind of empty and lost after i call it done ^^ its like a "ok.. so what now? should i have done better?" feeling. i just cant help it. does anyone have the same feeling? like you put so much of yourself into it and you are really excited and even when you are not painting you thinkn about what you are going to fix/ finish/ final touch next and once its over i feel like im at point zero again ^^ can anyone relate to that? i found routine to bring me up again. doing fundamental practises help. getting more knowledge. still .. it kind of sucks because i know its really just my mind playing dumb with me and i could progress so much faster without this kind of block after each serious painting where i challenge myself. looking back at old work seeing the progress is also highly encouraging but can only do so much XD

OH BOY CAN I RELATE TO THIS! What really helps me is to post the painting here. Most everyone here is encouraging and points out the good points of the painting in addition to giving advice. I find I have become much more attached to my paintings lately. When I was doing them to be sold I kind of didn't care as much about them, but now that I'm doing them in the hopes that I can create something that my family will be happy to have I put more care into them.

What are you working on?

How about sharing what you are currently working on. I started a scene of NYC. Not much to it yet. I plan to make it a snow scene. I don't have a reference photo per-se but several that I'm taking pieces from.

Haven't had much/any time for art lately. We decided that our RV choice was wrong for us so we traded it in for a fifth wheel. Now we have plenty of room and everything is up to date, we bought new. We're settled in at our new campground address and I hope to find time for some art now.

We have a beautiful little pond beside us with a blue heron and some geese living there at the moment. It's going to make a great place to set up an easel and do some plein aire paintings.
