OK, this might be stretching it, but I wanted to paint from life again and I had these flowers with the pollen scattering on the petals.Dusty pollen.
As usual I had a few frustrating moments.. the tonalities of the petals the reflections and the high lights and as usual, it needs more work......more contrast I think and so I may pick up the argument again and
I have to say that there was a moment two where I felt in tune with the moment/process and I caught a glimpse of how this painting thing works.

I posted this picture last night and thought it was "blah". It was a bit of struggle painting. The darks and lights of the the linen were elusive. I am really glad that I posted it though. It does help to look at it with fresh eyes the day after and I really appreciate the nice comments!

Something different this week. A skull, painted for a friend who collects day of the dead items. I am not too thrilled with it right now however...but then I have been looking at it all day perhaps tomorrow I will feel differently.
Before making a resolution some reflection is necessary.
The honest appraisal of the of the past requires an acceptance of human imperfection and frailty.
