A few things have been keeping me from painting as much as usual. At the top of the list is this puzzle my son got me for Christmas.

Yeah. I am a puzzle person but this 3000 piecer almost kicked my ass.

I finished it yesterday so now I can move on with my life and get back to more painting….until I come up with my next distracting obsession.

Here are a few photos of  the pieces in progress. They are both a bit in the “I am not sure what is happening” phase, but it too shall pass.

And my large painting is coming along. I am trying to figure out how to eliminate details without covering anything up. Anyone have a magic wand I can borrow, because it might be the only way to make that happen.

Still figuring it out as I go along and as always, I’ll keep you posted!
