Painting of a mouse – in progress

Mouse in progress

This is my current work in progress.  A little mouse who is sitting watching me from the easel on my worktable.  He is patiently waiting for me to decide where he lives or what he is doing with his life.

I like to have more than one painting on the go at any one time, preferably in different stages of completion.  It helps keep me away from that dreadful time when I have NOTHING to paint.  That’s when procrastination sets in along with loss of confidence.  Not a nice place.  But when I am painting, ideas flow and I can’t wait to have a go at the next idea.

Back to the mouse though – he looks such a friendly fellow  (I’m starting to feel like Beatrix Potter!).  Shall I put him peeping out from behind a rock, a flowerpot or perhaps just vegetation?  It will come to me I know, but in the meantime I am just enjoying his company.
