New Painting

This week I got some studio time in despite both cars needing brake repairs on the same day and a very sick chicken that required a lot of attention.  Unfortunately the chicken died and is the first to go of the six chicks I raised about 2 years ago.  I was sad to have her go but also know that raising "farm" animals is a little different than taking care of my cats.  Taking chickens to a vet and paying $50 to just walk through the door isn't an option.

So this week's planned work was pushed to the back burner as more important things needing my attention came up.  I'm learning to try to deal with what comes my direction and let go of feeling like I can control how I use my time every day.  The art making and preparation for my show was put on hold but I am hoping to put some time in tomorrow in my studio.  Things are  coming together for my show in 2 weeks.

Here is the painting that I finished this week.  I don't have a title for it yet but I thought I'd still post it today.
