Amy Lee (No 2 on my allowed list.)


Amy Lee
oil on canvas

At last I got my procrastinating, lazy backside around to finishing a painting! I've had this sketched out and sat on top of the microwave staring at me for weeks. It's taken about three evenings to do it and I may do a bit more to it yet... Then again I may decide that enough is enough and may end up doing too much and ruin it.. A particular failing of mine.

JUST LEAVE IT ALONE YOU KNOB!!!!! I hear you cry.. Or was that the voice in my head again? Oh bollocks! I thought I'd got rid of him.. They promised me the pills would sort that out... He is right though... Any thoughts? Anyone else wanna get in my head and pulls my strings? A word of warning though. You have to look at me naked!! Changed your mind? Yeah thought so, not many supplementary personalities have the stomach for that one.

It tried to snow earlier. What a tease. There were great fat globs of the stuff sticking everywhere and I was looking forward to burying Rosie in it... Purely for photographical research of course. Everyone loves a cute kiddie photo, 'specially if it involves muck, mess and mayhem; but especially if it involves the 'Ooooooh that's gotta hurt' factor. But alas it's pouring with rain now and washed it all away. I could stand her in that for a while and take photo's of a little drownded rat..

Watch this space...

Dun-dun-duuuuhn...

Lovely painting leave the thing alone, you know enough is enough! I put up a noitice in my studio "Put your brain into gear before you put the paintbrush into action" doesn't work but there again there is always hope.
Nice to meet you and your lovely family.
Sorry about the snow.

Yes Blossom is right and I don't paint - but you will know when you have done enough . .so step away from that paintbrush . . .

Ooooo we don't get snow like we used to - it always seems to turn to rain now . . . :-(

Gave me a start to see your Amy Lee picture as just like a girl in my extended family! You are a good artist.

I love the painting and don't think it needs altering.
