Goldie and Blue
16 x 20 inch cradled board
This is the last painting in 2014 and I finished it this morning. Well, it's mostly finished. There are a few areas I would like to clean up, especially around the bird. I painted this based on a painting I did in my sketchbook a while back. Honestly, the whole thing was about using the gold colored acrylic paint I bought and the story unfolded from there, in my sketchbook and in the painting.
I read someone's Facebook post this morning that said they were going to push 2014 right off the edge of a cliff and it made me laugh. I wasn't laughing at this person's hardships, no, I was laughing at the thought of being able to actually push a bad year off of the edge of a cliff. Now wouldn't that feel good.
I can't say 2014 was the best year. I lost my mom this year and it still hurts. But I've had many blessings too, and for this I am so grateful.
Thank you all for everything! Here's to a blessed 2015 for all of us!
Happy New Year!
