little fish























on ebay $.99 starting bid see HERE

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

Preciosos tus trabajos...creo que a todos nos pasa lo mismo, el miedo a que se terminen las ideas..Pero al final siempre hay algo en tu cabeza que pintar, y tus pinturas están llenas de cosas bonitas. Ánimo!
