Here's my final piece I was able to do for Art Amsterdam, "Soup du Jour" 10" x 8.5" acrylic on a custom wood plaque. It's my small homage to one of my favorite dishes -- crumbled Ritz crackers in Campbell's tomato soup. That and the fact that my dad worked for Nabisco :)
How I got these ambitious pieces done in the midst of the worst of my depression is beyond me. I think I must have been on auto pilot. Now staring at a piece I need to do I am at a loss for even how to begin to paint. I now have an idea of why people who cannot paint are amazed by people who can. It seems impossible right now. I'll take another shot at it tomorrow and hopefully will have something new soon.
