A Break Until January

Painting #1 “Fire Skies” 11 x 14 inches

I have decided to take a break and will return in January. I am a very positive person but with the Camp Fire affecting my neighboring communities, I have been dealing with some depression. I was worried the first week about a friend of mine who lived in Paradise. Once I heard that he and his wife were safe and sound, I was relieved. Sad to hear that he had lost everything in this fire.

Painting #2 “Foreboding” 11 x 14 inches

As the fires raged, I couldn’t help but paint what I was feeling. I was a Butte County resident during my college years in the 1980’s. This area is dear to my heart. My husband and I often ride up to Chico and Paradise for the day. It will be forever changed.

Painting #3 untitled 11 x 14 inches

This one was not as successful as I have hoped it would be. Perhaps a little busy. It turned more into a semiabstract.

Painting #4 “Fury” 11 x 14 inches

I just couldn’t get the fires out of my system.

Painting #5 untitled 11 x 14 inches

I don’t know what to think about this one, not sure where this is. Not sure if it success.

Painting #6 “Wistful” 11 x 14 inches

After completing this one I felt that I needed to take a break. My attitude towards my art has taken a big slump. I don’t like having such a negative attitude. I have decided to take a break from posting until January. I do have a pastel portrait to finish and I will continue with that.

I will see you all in January!
