Starting again...

Starting Again
24"x30"
Acrylic on canvas
It's been a while since my last post on this blog. Life has a way of throwing difficult and painful events our way every once in a while. After our recent move to China Spring, Texas, my father passed away. Watching the pain in my mother's eyes is heartbreaking. But, life must go on.
This is the first painting I completed after losing my dad and it definitely feels like I'm "starting over again", thus the title of the painting. I'm working on a series of new, heavily textured paintings and will post as soon as I complete them.
Getting back into my studio is certainly theraputic for me.

Fil, it's a good title and a beautiful painting. Although it is mostly "red" I see the somberness in it. I'm sorry to about your father's passing so soon after moving to china springs. You are brave to say life goes on and while it does I know that this is very hard. My heart goes out to you!
Love,
Judy

Thanks Judy.

We need to find purpose in the things we do, no matter what life brings. Getting back into painting is part of the healing process, I guess.
