Last year I painted this during art class, but had already sent out my Christmas cards. Then this year I was going to have cards printed up with my painting, but ran out of time. Therefore I am just going to post this painting and hopefully next year I will have time to paint a Christmas theme and have it printed.
After everything that happened to the financial world in October and now all I wanted was Solitude away from the news and talk radio. I started painting this a few weeks ago, but then got interrupted by painting a baby room mural for my youngest brother and his wife so now I finally have finished it. I had decided the name of this painting weeks ago and since then have heard this word used so many times. Last week mom and I went to see Neil Diamond for her birthday. He of course sang, "Solitary Man," and did a fantastic job. Once I heard that I knew I was keeping the title of this painting.
This is week 4th through 17th of December for http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/ . This morning I had watched a program on PBS called "Simon Schamas Power of Art," and it was on Vincent Van Gogh. On the show it showed his painting called "The Pair of Shoes," much like the layout of this weeks challenge. After watching the show I was inspired to do a knife painting using brighter colors although I kept the shoes brown.
