Last week I had foot surgery and I will be incapacitated and unable to paint for at least a few weeks. So I finally have time to start the blog I always wanted to write. I love this purple! Although I usually paint standing, constantly stepping back to view my work, I have set up my easel and studio to be able to work sitting down in a rolling chair. But for the next few weeks I have to keep my foot elevated and painting that way is just not working out.
