Winter pansies before they are planted- acrylic on masonite, 12 x 16 inches
Still life with some stripes- gouache on watercolor paper 8 x 8 inches
Blue light making it's way in through the window- acrylic on masonite, 9 x 12 inches
It became apparent that I spent more time worrying about doing the work well, badly or so and so,
than actually working. Obviously, I needed some new rules (not that I have ever followed any, but let's pretend).
Rule 1. - Never blog , answer emails, do treasuries or any computer stuff, EVER,before a full day's painting.
Rule 2. - Nine o'clock close the studio door, turn on the radio (thank you cbc2), and paint until five.
(but I can tweet- and really that's not cheating at all- just breaking the artist's isolation...)
Rule 3.- Nothing should prevent me from sticking with rules one and two. Nothing (ok.maybe lunch)
And so I did this week, and I painted larger and happier than ...probably years. Sad but happy.
Now, that bottle of wine. Where is it? I am ready for the weekend. Cheers my sweets.
