I’ve taken a long break from painting since the holidays and I needed to get back to my regular routine again. I wasn’t thrilled with the painting that was sitting on my easel as something that could get me back in the groove so I selected my Pegasus, or Winged Horse painting, which has been sitting on the side for quite awhile, as the painting that could get me started.
I thought the painting session went pretty well. All was good until I finished cleaning up and then I saw a text message from my daughter in California and she texted me that Kobe Bryant and his daughter had died. That was a shocking news for me because I’m a big Laker fan and a big Kobe fan all those years that he played.
So in giving a name for this painting I thought of some oddball title like some artists do. I thought of naming this painting: The Day Kobe Died. But I changed my mind out of respect for Kobe. I’ll probably just name it Winged Horse, or Pegasus.
