Painting: Celeste Bergin, "Virgin" oil on 18x14 stretched canvas
For once I did not have a zillion things to do today and some place I had to be. Hallelujah! The stacks of my paintings have been awaiting their fate in the front room for awhile. Today I sanded down many of the oils (possibly 1/3). I photographed them first..just for record. I also gessoed over a batch of acrylic paintings. My artist friend Katherine van Schoonhoven has been eradicating some of her old paintings too. It's a great feeling to get rid of the drek.
After my sanding extravaganza I took one of my newly sanded-down panels and painted "Virgin". The idea to paint "Virgin" came from a challenge on the Portraiture forum at Wet Canvas. I think my painting came out looking a little like Freddie Mercury (which isn't so much a complaint.. Baudry's drawing was manish too). Ok..now that's me--what did you do today?
