I went to the fish market and bought a sheepshead. I asked the fishmonger if he had any with the head still on. I proudly told him I was going to paint it.
He said, "oh."
That was on Weds. of last week.
I had to finish this still life without the star of the show. After a while the inside of my nose started to hurt a little bit. I think it was worth the effort. I don't think I am going to be eating it. The dog won' touch it, and I haven't seen the cats all day.
I am a lot like this kid in the red shirt. seeking. I paint every day. yes. Every day I slog away at it. I make mistakes and start over and sometimes I am thankful for the opportunity to mix color. I don't post a lot of the works I do these days. If I had painted them last year I would have been satisfied with them, but now it is more and more difficult to be happy with this or that. All that said, I slog away it every day and I am grateful for it.
