Honest—Abe, oil, 6 x 4.5"
I'm finally on the mend. When we were around 4-years old, my twin sister and I were sick at the same time (surprise!) and we were drifting in and out of feverish sleep in our parents' bedroom (easier access for our Mom). It made such an impression on me, how slowly time seemed to pass. This time, I felt that same sensation of time slowing. I'd like to hold onto that feeling once I get back into full swing of things. Goal: Be healthy, but enjoy Pockets of Slow Time.
This little painting is in response to the Daily Paintworks Challenge, part one: Using Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Umber and White, paint Abraham Lincoln in a neutral gray. I don't remember ever painting this way before, although I've read about it. Great exercise. Click here to see the many paintings submitted to this challenge: Daily Paintworks Lincoln Challenge.
