The weather is finally going to improve a bit today. I am ready for some sunshine and blue skies but we will have today with mostly overcast skies before sunshine returns.
I officially retired from the military on 5 October with a little over 30 years service. The last ten years were busy, trying years and I have been adjusting to the new life and enjoying some free time. I have done very little artisitc in the last 10 years and had not painted during that period (or nothing serious). One of the first things I did was go and purchase art supplies and have been trying to re-learn techniques long lost and retrain the eye, hands and reconnect the brain synapse between the two.
While I spend more time repainting the canvas and starting over, that is what I expected as I am learning but still very much enjoying the process. I decided that one of the shots of the hawk that I took on 24 October was a good practice subject. A little blurry which is best to apply some filters in photoshop to get more "artsy" looking.
