“Swallowing The Last Embrace” 12×16 on wood panel (not for sale)
This one took me a while to finish. Partly because I can only paint right now around 3am between feedings. And partly because I’m exhausted. Physically, mentally and emotionally I just couldn’t find the desire to sit down and let my heart work to paint this moment.
It is getting harder and harder for me to paint. What use to be my cathartic release has turned into a painful activity. I’ve been seriously mulling over the idea of quitting or retiring, however you say giving up as an artist. When I look at this painting finished, I don’t know the answer.
