This is a little oil painting I created a while back when I had no inspiration for work left. I thought it would help, but it didn’t. I realized that the only thing I had to do was wait… and wait. That worked out well and I’m now back to work, finally. Probably I only needed to reload my batteries, but I have also been quite sad and depressed. My dog Raider died, he almost starved himself to death as he was sick for a few months. All we could do was to take him to the vet. He couldn’t stand up by himself anymore.
Now I only have my youngster Border collie “Chatt” left. My son who just had his 17th birthday moved to his farther (my idea) to play fotball (soccer) in a different country for over a year. It has been only one month since he left and I already miss him so much. Sure, I know children will grow up and move sooner or later, but I wasn’t prepared for this feeling at all. I have also been ill for three weeks, which made this situation even harder. Now it’s quite empty in the house… Anyway, I will give this one to my parents since it’s a painting of their grandchild playing in the sand, painted alla prima.
