Today’s song while painting is Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra – Smile.
I started this one imagining I’d add sharp edges with yellow but I wanted to use up the red and white I had left from painting the night before. And then it turned all pink. And I thought to myself “What a cliché! On Valentine’s Day!”. But I left it alone. No yellow.
It doesn’t feel like I’ll ever be in the mood for painting sunny landscapes. Or maybe I’ll paint it to escape into somewhere else sometime. Every day is painful, maybe painting will help or maybe it won’t.
