Idaho Pastime

Day 21....I have painting fatigue!

I tackled a picture I thought would be pretty straightforward...but alas, anything short of a paint-by-number set right now feels tedious.   For today...I am crying uncle.  I walk away from this one a bit frustrated and will have to do.  

"Idaho Pastime" is one of the favorite things many people like to do...go fishing.  It is especially a favorite pastime of the men in our family.  In Idaho if you drive by any river, stream, pond, or lake you will see a fisherman, woman and/or child fishing...yes, even during the chilly winter months.

  1. Beautiful painting...saw it on Leslie's blog today (I think), or maybe I have "blog-reading fatigue." I can appreciate your having painting fatigue, but I think this painting is much better than you're realizing right now! I'll bet other people tell you the same.

    I hope this next week goes well for you. I honestly believe our job this week is to not come out of this burned out but to maintain our love for/interest in painting! I hope we reach our goal, but honestly for me, if the cost of painting 30 is never wanting to see a paint brush again, it's not worth that much of a push! Be well, please take care of yourself...
