There was a seasonal 12-days of art prompt I was going to participate in - but I messed up. I made it too darn complicated and so I have several (overly complicated) works in progress, but only finished this ONE for the prompt "cookie".
I'm seriously rolling my eyes at myself, I don't know why I have to make it so hard. The whole point was to loosen up and basically work at "study" level on the prompts and knock something out every day, and work on commissions in the evenings... but. Yeah. I'm apparently overly complicated even in my studio. *sigh* I mean, I could have JUST painted a single COOKIE, for crying out loud. But then I saw this reference photo of a raccoon (pixabay) and I could just imagine him hoarding a bunch of cookies with that look in his eye... and here I am with only ONE painting out of 10 so far. *head*desk*
Also, my life blew up, AGAIN. On an extreme level, that of course I can't share publicly - but let's just say I could probably supply enough topics for an entire talkshow season. It'd be riveting, I tell ya!
Aaaaaaaaanyway. This guy is 6x8 inches, acrylic on canvas panel. The tooth was rougher than I like, and I didn't prime it and sand it down because it was pre-toned and I didn't want to lose that. The trade off was fighting with a medium tooth when I prefer fine or plate instead. Still, since my relocation things have been so hard, this is only the second painting I have finished. That's why even though I have missed the prompts, I'm going to go back and try to knock them out study-style faster and just try to get the paint moving again. I need it. Even if they're garbage! Or lacking raccoons hoarding cookies. Simple. Think "simple", Kyra...
