"Southern Veggies"


5x7 oil on panel
sold


This is my latest submission to DSFDF.  This painting ended up being a great metaphor for life.  What I mean by that is - I wasn't going to do it at first.  I wasn't really inspired by the subject matter and have been suffering from artist's block.  I had pretty much decided to sit this one out.  Then I started looking at all the entries that were pouring in... my inspiration started to grow and I was totally loving looking at everyone's work.  My whole attitude changed.  I wanted to paint it.  I put aside everything else I was working on and just got lost in it.  And I think it actually turned out pretty good.


Sometimes the things we don't think we want to do end up being the things we are so glad we did.

Tracie, I read your comments about the challenge and agree that seeing all of the submissions to this challenge really pumped me up too, and got the creative energy flowing - this is a great group of artists!
I love your painting - the colors are beautiful, and the whole painting has a nice, easy flow to it.
