This has been a fabulous Labor Day Weekend - warm and sunny everyday, nothing on the schedule but painting - my energy is returning and so is my focus - when I'm tired I can't keep my focus on my work - my mind wanders, mostly to wanting to sleep or just stare off into space or to just wander around the yard, grazing on blackberries and watching the birds do all their busy bird things. Painting takes huge amounts of energy, not just physical, but spiritual and mental - the thought of trying to wield a large piece of board around in my small space was just too much, no less the painting and then the CLEAN UP!! But I'm back and loving it! I'm working on the new board and finding it awful - it doesn't take the paint like my old fav board, it's bendy and in all ways just an unsatisfying surface to work on, but work on it I do.....it will have to do until I can get out of here and make the hour trek to another home depot and hope that they will have it.......anyway, this is mixed media on crappy board 36x24........'The Sugar Bowl'
Five days into September - yikes! We are rocketing into Autumn in a few weeks - hope you are all enjoying your three day weekend.
