Oil on Linen
Here is the first painting I've done for 2010. Sorry about the glare. Maybe it's because it's still wet. I've found that after a hiatus from painting, there is a renewed enthusiasm. It's no longer a struggle. Painting for me now is pure joy.
I think no matter who we are, there is happiness in focused attention. Getting lost in deep concentration. Some people call this state "being in the zone". I call it bliss.
