Easter Eggs - Colorful Still Life ACEO Painting

Easter Eggs
2.5 x 3.5 inches
acrylic on watercolor paper

This morning I got the entries ready for a local juried show ready for the mail along with an application to a juried holiday show and made the trip to the post office. I then came home with the intention of starting on the paintings I need to finish next week for another local juried show. It was a beautiful day, so I considered taking a few hours to paint outside, but I figured I had better get going on these entries because I have still one more show coming up after this one.

But then I found I couldn't concentrate. On anything.

I thought I already knew what I was going to paint for these paintings. I combed through my sketches and reference photos, set up props, and nothing looked right. Ick.

So rather than lose the whole day, I did this quick little painting, hoping to get myself back on track. I think it did the trick. I feel ready to get going on the new painting tomorrow. I hope.
