Yet another of my exhibition pieces @ this year’s “Access The Arts 2019” at the county fair.

I really want to re-approach this work sometime again in the near future. Perhaps to do it over and see if I can make it even better, because what happened is that I began to run out of my deadline time for the year’s entries and so began to heavily compensate with faster drying acrylics paints and a minimal background. As a result I fell to second place on a work I know in my heart I needed to have started much sooner and could have been much closer to the original vision I had for it. I love it, I do. I just know it could have been even more.

I’d actually done a bit over the summer months. Sadly, nothing that I sped to share here until now. My apologies for that, but let’s just say that I hadn’t been in the brightest of places in my mind and needed to take care of myself. It’s sadder still that this has been an all too frequent topic of the few journal entries that I manage to make anymore. I’m sorry if that sounds depressing, but I’m being as honest as I can be about the status of my overall health. I spent much of 2019 gaming; roaming across the US with my husband in the big truck just steadying my thoughts and escaping a bit between a handful of jobs. I needed it a lot.

Oils/acrylics, and some oil crayon; cir. August 2019
