So far, So good

Not bad for the first part of a new week. 1091 words for Map Hunter II rough draft, been doing some reading, got bloomers on kids, and now, I've done a new painting. I'm with an online art group and they have creative prompts and challenges. I'd been telling myself to do them but... well... you know, life happens.

This pic is on a canvas panel in acrylic paint with gloss medium. That's why is so shiny. The challenge was to use your non-dominant hand to do your piece. I used a brand new palette knife, which was fun to do. And it was a challenge. I felt like I had a monsters hand sewn onto my body. Trying to get my right hand to work like my left was crazy. So many jerky movements. The right hand was truly possessed but I made myself slow down and think about what I wanted to do. I had an idea in mind and I worked towards that. I would like to do it again.
