Left alone again on the sunny path, with a memory of the rain.


“I am suddenly left alone again on the sunny path, with a memory of the rain.”
— Azar Nafisi (Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books)


I can’t take too much credit for this painting.  I did paint it but I found the canvas with a black and white underpainting already printed on it at the local thrift store for $4.  The color key and paintings were missing but it was perfect for my purpose: to relight my creative spark.


It was my first try at using an underpainting; and I must say I do love the process and hope to challenge myself to paint using this technique in the future.  I painted this in acrylics; whereas underpainting is usually done in oils and pastels. I am curious as to why not do this in acrylics.

It’s Memorial Day weekend.  I think I will stick around locally; perhaps search for someplace local to hike.  In spite of the lack of rain, we have grey cloud cover overhead daily.

No rain, little sun.

Very unusual.

Very frustrating.
