A Little Bit Arty

My painting mojo has been scarce of late but i finally found a couple of pieces coming together after months of stagnation.

This first piece is something I have been working on for a year or more. I couldn't get it to a place where it made sense of what i was trying to say so I had to keep shelving it.

Just when i finished it i received correspondence from my sister outlining her battle with depression and feelings of suicide. It seemed odd that the piece had ended up being so dark and proved such a challenge at the time when she was suffering through her own battles.

The second piece started as a Sunday project with a very dear friend of mine. It's been through several changes and has provided a great deal of fun on rainy days.

Just like the piece above it ended up being put to one side as inspiration dried up. This week i found the pull to start working on it again and I have finally moved it into the direction I wanted. I'm pretty pleased with the result.

It still needs a couple of extra layers but I don't think it will take me too long to get it finished and framed ready for a summer exhibition.
