Hey there! My first post of 2021! Not to mention my first post since I think August of last year. Wow…!
I hope that everyone had a good holiday season (I didn’t), despite the crummy year that we had in 2020. Let’s hope that this year will be better.
I won’t bore you with a lot of reasons as to why I’ve been gone for so long (it’s not that important, and not very interesting) so let’s just pick up where we left off, shall we?
The first SIA of the year was chosen by Terri, over on http://meadowtreestyle.com, our new SIA host when our friend, Kim stepped down (I have been away for a long time!) She chose a classic and iconic piece by Johannes Vermeer called Girl With The Golden Earring. I just love the serene look of the girl’s face in the painting. The colors are quite muted, giving the entire painting a sort of melancholic calm feel, without making it look too depressing. My kind of painting for sure.
And as this is an SIA post, naturally my photos will follow.
As always, I went with color matching, and I think that I managed to get it just right, between the blue and tan-like colors found in the painting. Not a bad start for my return to SIA and first post of the year. I hope that I can keep it up for future challenges. Life has a way of messing up one’s routine at times so we’ll see how I do. 😉
Be sure to check back on Terri’s blog this coming Wednesday to see how everyone else interpreted this painting, as well as give a little support for our new host!
P.S. Please forgive me if some of my posts from here on out are not on par with my previous ones. Since I’ve been away from the blogging world, WordPress has since changed their format, forcing me to “relearn” everything that I was STILL learning before the change! Geeze, WordPress… 😛
