In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. ~Albert Camus
For this painting, I had no plan other to paint what I feel and knowing I wanted to work with beautiful sea green color. I had intended on pairing it with brown as the other dominant color and there is an underlayer of that beneath but blues in the frame. After losing the job that was a daily stressful struggle yet that I loved dearly, I am now working mindless,"nothing" job. I feel my spirits slowly atrophying, not being able to use the skills that I have. When I came across this quote, I identified with the winter. Painting has been my invincibility during this time, what keeps me going and heads me in to each day, allowing me to keep up a good fight. I am wondering what is the "invincible summer" others have?
