I never realized how crazy the world of retail was until now. Last year I was worked very few hours, as I was inexperienced. But now that I know what I’m doing, I work a lot more and, this time of year, the store is open even longer than usual. How is this relevant to my blog? Well, despite my best efforts, I wasn’t able to finish my painting today.
I did start a painting, however. In the partial sketch below, I blocked out areas for the sky, the foliage and the foreground. I haven’t decided if the foreground will be a river, lake or field.
One of my ideas is to make this a night-time scene, with a campfire.
I am happy that I have time to think about the possibilities.
