Consistency and Commitement




































I constantly struggle to create a consistent body of work, but as a friend recently said, I haven't been creating like this for a long time, so it's kind of normal. I just feel like my work is all over the place, can't find something I want to commit to!
I had an epiphany this past weekend...commitment has never really been my strength either, I get bored really, really fast! But I think I may have come up with subject matter that stays interesting...I'm going to focus on the places I've been while traveling.
I really enjoy depicting those moments when people are at peace where they are. It seems so rare these days that people are fully absorbed in the moment. Distractions abound. These moments of calm resonate with me, they show the place I want to be.
This is my first painting in this series, let's see if it actually becomes a series! The first time I went to Paris, my soon to be husband said we had to stay one night in Pigalle. This is not the high end of Paris, but it certainly is an interesting part. I had a wonderful night. We stayed in a "seedy" motel. I was sitting on the edge of the bed with the windows open looking out to the street at dusk. The lighting was wonderful and Philip snapped this picture...I think to be honest the only really good picture he's taken. I know how happy I was then and how much in love with my husband...here I was totally in the moment.
So the journey begins...here's the work in progress.

This self portrait is already looking so amazing Evelyn. It is very evident that you have a real affinity for this place and moment. I am excited to see the finished piece and am hoping all the best for you and this new series, my friend!
