Painting #27, done in the wee hours of the morning. Technically, I call that 2 paintings in 1 day.
I called this piece "BLUE MONDAY" in honor of all the people who have to get up and go to a job they don't particularly like after a weekend of relaxation and fun. It's hard to do, and it takes fortitude and more cups of coffee the older we get. The trick is to find something you love to do. The old saying, "Do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life" comes to mind. I LOVE painting. I could do it every day without weekends! My problem is I don't make enough money at it to justify it as a job. But as long as I can, I'll keep painting things that make me smile, and hope they make someone else happy, too.
