I think we can get so into that initial burst of creativity that we often go for it when we first step into the studio (whether it be somewhere else or your kitchen table). And who doesn't love those long, uninterrupted hours? When we start a project and start crafting the idea, molding it from an idea in our head (or heart)?
A girl could start a lot of paintings and journal pages like this.
But then things get hard, or we've put most of what we wanted down, and anyway, life is calling us back, now, so we'll finish things up later.
Except the next time we sit down to play, we want to do something new. So we bargain with ourselves. I'll only play for twenty minutes and then tie up loose ends. I'll draw just one face, then finish that other page.
Except we get into the flow and three hours are gone.
I d this often, and am trying fight past it to a state of bliss. I can't promise I'll fall I love with all these bits, but I'll try!
so I went into the studio today to hang out for a bit and amjoybe workin on some pages, I ended up varnishing and few canvases and prepping the. To go out into the world as varnishes pieces (I want you to want to touch them!).
Just a day f ain't ing the edges of canvases black and adding final coats. of seeing what I have and where I'd like to expensing my energy. I added to that painting above on the right which is beginning to turn out.
I asked Tangie to shoot a couple of pics of me hugging my newest paintings! I love everything about it...my messy apron, my no-nonsense hair, my glee.
I know so many of you wish you could be there with me. This one's for you.
