The last few years I did a review of my art for the year. Between the health crisis with my husband and the Covid 19 crisis, this has been one crazy year. So this year's review will be a little different too.
Some of my artwork was very therapeutic and done at the hospital. Jerry got sick at the very beginning of January. I did a few sketches of him in the hospital in a variety of media, including ArtRage on my iPad. This was something I could control in a world where things were out of my control.
- Yes, I miss traveling and sketching in new places, but more than that I have been doing a lot of sketching and very little actual painting.
- I am also doing a lot of outdoor sketching on my own and only rarely get together with another artist to work. I only joined up with my plein air group once because they go out in the morning and I am busy with Jerry at that time of day.
- I don't think I have painted anything larger than 6 x 8. I will have to remedy that in the new year.
- Also, I really haven't worked on any gouache paintings or alcohol inks all year. Maybe that will have to be my goal for January. It seems that I there is a lot of work I need to get back to.
