the photo that inspired the collage bear, and a pastel study of the same bear.

Bear collage

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Popped into one of the galleries today. The first thing the owner said after she saw me was to start moaning about how quiet things had been (gallery owner's code for "none of your paintings have sold"). But she asked me for anything with hares or ducks. Part of me bristled at being told (well, asked) what to create. But then another part of my brain ran off with the idea of mixed media hares and by the time I got home I was keen to get started.

I saw my doctor on Tuesday and got some more dried frog pills. As usual I feel better for having taken a positive step, even though the pills can't possibly have kicked in yet. I still don't want to see people but I have more motivtion to do things at home.

I'll put up pictures of the hares soon.
