Blue Funk Day


According to Katherine Tyrrell on Making a Mark, today is considered to be the most depressing day of the year, and it certainly was a blue funk day in the studio. I started and stopped, painted and wiped off. All of my still life "props" had softened to the point of near rotting - except for the onion - and it was too cold and frosty to go out to the market for more.




Three Pears on A White Plate
16 x 20, Oil on Linen



The above painting is one I set aside more than a month ago thinking it was finished, but I wasn't happy with it and finally took it out and tried working on the colors of the pears and the edges. I really prefer to paint wet-in-wet and finish a painting in one setting, maybe two if I haven't used a medium and the paint stays workable. But I've only recently started painting still life and I'm learning with every painting. I wish I'd been more knowledgeable with my edges on this painting, but the newer work is much better and one day I might do another like this because I like the composition.




Vietnamese Pot Tied With String
22 x 28, Oil on Linen
@2008

This painting is the large studio version of the small sketch I posted here a few weeks ago. I did this after I painted the Three Pears painting, and I am much happier with the edges in this painting. I never thought I would enjoy doing still life, but I'm finding them so much easier than the struggles I constantly have with the landscape. I know that it's because I am actually painting from life with these paintings, and if I ever expect to push my landscapes to a higher level I will have to do the same with them and stop relying on photo references. Oh...but that means going out in the cold...maybe I'll think about that in the spring.

Sue, I, too read the blog about Blue Monday. It almost captured me...but I took the path that if I just wet a brush I could keep the evil twin off my shoulder! So, I painted all afternoon and before I knew it...the day was complete. And I had another phase on a painting.

Hi, I seem to be following Leslie and found your blog. I know the Blue Funk Day well but not for me today. Your pears are lovely.
