Well, it is me. From the photo of 2007 in Geirangerfjord, Norway, one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.
I am much slender in the sketch. Good method to fight weight :-).
I wanted to try to paint the bright sunlight and to see how it works on colors and shadows and whites.
Overworked. I need more practice.
The chair is perfect.
My azalea is in bloom. All winter I was fighting for its life: more water - less water, in the sun - in the shadow, new soil, new fertilizing, sprinkling. It did not take me seriously and was losing its leaves from time to time, showing that I was bad, bad gardener. Flowers? - Forget it, baby.
Then, in July, I left it for two weeks in dark room, no watering, no fresh air, no sprinkle. Just side by side with huge plastic bowl of water. The flower took it seriously. It does not want to die. It started appreciate my efforts. Now the flowers are all over the body and the ton is on the way. Very human behavior.
I am planning to emigrate it to the bathroom.
