It's official! Beep Beep

It's official! Well I don't want to get too excited but I think it might be possible.. and I don't know if I should say this out loud but I think I might have unstuck my little artist block.  I would start working on something and would erase it over and over and it seemed like a ton of overs.  I am going to be honest it was driving me a little crazy.  I woke up or should I say jumped up yesterday morning and had the urge to get some real work done! I have to get real work done everyday but I was going to deal with my block head on and crack some skulls. Well not really crack some skulls because I can barely kill a spider and when I say barely...  I find a shoe and run at it, hopping I give it a whack. ugh spiders.  So maybe I wanted to just take no prisoners! How about that? 
Here is my latest painting of a NYC subway scene and I wanted to use some abstract shapes for the movement through the window.  
PS I was feeling like my hair was very Audry Hepburn  .   Happy Thursday! :)
