Four more before I rest. I am really really reeeeeally needing some time off. I'm drained. I'm tired. And I'm dry. I have four more paintings to go for the gallery walks before I can do that. And that knowledge is just sitting on my shoulders like a hawk hovering over my every move. I have been working on a few paintings that just are not working. So I gave up on them. I was very frustrated with this until last night. I wasn't planning on doing any sketching. I just sat down into my favorite chair with a glass of wine and started listening to my husband and our friend talk back and forth. Then suddenly an idea flashed before me. And I practically sprinted to the studio to get my sketchbook...to capture this little bird before he fluttered away.
Suddenly the flood gates opened and all these ideas poured out again. I couldn't sketch fast enough....some of them got away. But I got all the ideas I needed to complete the four paintings.
That simply amazes me. I've been talking to my husband about how I will never get another idea again in my life. I was done. And I was starting to think I needed to go pick up an application at Speedway or Dairy Queen. And he said to wait...that it would come. I just needed to be a little more patient.
And it did.
Four more to go before I rest.
Four more...And I know I can do it.
