painting, painting, writing, painting

I realized I am working on 12 paintings at the same time! 
I just keep going from one to the other as I let each layer dry~

This is the first palette I ever bought about twenty years ago! 
Ten years ago if that sounds like I am younger! - yeah, let's say 10.
I don't wash the palette off anymore. I love the layers of paint, and I love that the palette changes and morphs with new colors.

Step one, step two, layering paint

I softened up the palette. This palette is more summery, more sherbet, more peonies- pink roses.
Here is step one

and here is step two

It's fun changing the palette. The next layer is deeper pinks, raspberry, greens and teal. 
I would be great if I could visualize writing a novel, the way I can see the layers of a painting.
The novel revising is on hold while I paint. But it is in the back of my mind and I know that the next revision will be worth it.
