Oh man, where does the time go? Summer vacation is officially over for me and I've been trying my best to get back into the mood to work for at least a week. I spent two days on the Georgia coast, then headed to Michigan to spend a week with family. I returned to work the day after getting home so I've barely had any time to rest and relax my mind. This travel stuff is rough! But I won't complain too much, I'm so fortunate to be able to visit my family as often as I can. Even more fortunate to fly, which takes about 14 hours off one-way travel time.
Last night I made myself paint something, just anything, to get my hands dirty. So here you go, a wee little sock monkey. I had fun playing with textures and staying up late making sure everything looked good. It feels great to get back to work, and I'm hoping to knock a few more paintings out over the next few days.
I just listed this painting on my Etsy Shop: http://www.etsy.com/listing/77714496/sock-monkey-painting-on-artists-panel
