Way - Tara - 24" sq - recently completedI won't complain, this is natural and normal. Been here many times before and know that I'm just passing through. To be expected after a year of enthused painting, two shows delivered and everything else going on in life. I've tried all the tricks, feigned enthusiasm for one thing or another but I walk into the studio and just move paint around without purpose, totally dead ended.
Was a bit down about an incident concerning my last show (which sold well enough) but all seems in order now. Perhaps I'll be producing wonderful works with enthusiasm again soon. But it could be just seasonal doldrums... or the erratic busyness of summer which has no respect for routine. Lots of family coming and going in July and Aug... and that's a good thing. Might as well just close up shop for awhile... maybe spend spare time clearing debris out of corners and at least feeling like I'm accomplishing something. Hope this isn't more feigned enthusiasm... would love to have a few orderly corners!
And talk about distractions... we're caretaking our g-dog while her girls are at Disney World. Daisy is a people pooch and doesn't leave my side. Still a pup in training, we have need of many outside visits... another excuse for not focusing? Probably... but she sure is cute!
The above paintings were recently completed though the first has already had more paint applied so will have to retake the photo. It's the big ones that are causing the clog. Something about knowing the size of inventory already out there makes one wonder what the rush is.
