come together

Yesterday my to-do list had 14 items. Last night around 7 pm I finished the last one. Now I get to start all over today, currently my list has seven items, one of which is to get Lila's new (used) daybed painted white. We are moving her to a big girl bed this weekend. But to start off the day, Lila and I are going to Zoomagination at the zoo.
I'll just have to get to the other stuff later.

I just had a wonderful weekend full of family and friends and houseguests and a party...
not much work though :)
I'm starting fresh this morning, fueled with a cup of coffee and broccoli quiche. I've was quite industrious last week, painting every day, and I am trying to continue the practice. The weekends seem to be too busy to work, and maybe that's ok. Instead of feeling discouraged, perhaps I should just determine in advance, the weekends are family time and accept that I won't be painting.
Sometimes I'm afraid that if I paint, a lot, I will run out of ideas, but the opposite seems to be true. The more I create, the more ideas I get. It's hard to believe it will sustain itself. I know being an artist has less to do with 'inspiration' and more to do with perspiration, but there is an element that seems magical and beyond my control

new day

i have been a busy busy bee
I have SIX paintings in various stages of done
I have been painting so much and it makes me a happy girl
There has also been a lot of dreaming and planning and doing.
It all feels so good and so right. I feel like something big is right around the corner.
Speaking of big, I have been painting BIG. This painting is about 16" x 12". for me that's monumental :)

'super' duper

I think I've talked before about collage and the subconscious...
Here is another perfect example. I was flipping through my atlases and saw some face sized water areas, which are the areas I create most of my faces on. I noticed it was a map of Michigan and had some of the Great Lakes. I drew my girls face and cut it out and then discovered "SUPER" stamped across her forehead. It made me laugh because I knew I was doing a flying piece.

I'm back to listing myself on ebay, starting bid $.99!
