The Muse Stirs...
Why am I more easily motivated when trying to please someone else than when trying to please myself? Art is a game of selfish rules. I'm supposed to be reaching deep within and pulling out Gutsy Creative Energy... instead I'm energized by clues like size and style and "that beautiful coppery red" the client likes. Umm... maybe the G.C.E. has been all used up and can only be resurrected by references to paintings past. Well, let's HOPE it can be resurrected. No promises here, just directional motivation.
Gotta hurry, although Daisy Dog will reunite with family on Sat, we'll also receive a 12 yr old g-girl from NOLA who will be attending a volleyball camp at the University. That means we'll be at the lake house most of next week so all studio painting must be done this week. In any case, I got work ta do!
