I came across this recently, and being the mad genealogist that I am, I thought I’d share this with you. I often think about my ancestors…the many great-grandparents…and wonder what they were like.
It’s unfinished. I got so far and then couldn’t go further because there were things I didn’t like. So I just doodled around it.
Okay, so I’ve been away for a while trying to kick-start some creativity from within me. Unfortunately, it has not been as successful as I would like. In my whole life I have only done two (oil) paintings, and those were decades ago. One was a portrait and actually turned out quite successfully. The other was a fairly good knock-off of a photograph, which is a no-no because it wasn’t my photograph. That went to the curb and was immediately picked-up by a dumpster diver.
I recently attempted to do something using acrylics. I chose acrylics because it’s an easy clean-up. This piece is to cover a fuse box on the wall of a basement office, so I chose a topic giving the sense of looking out of a window.
As I look at it, I see lots of places that need improvement which I won’t list here. He loves it because it’s was done by me and for him. I would like some feedback from others, too. Please let me know where you think I could have done better.
