Work in Progress
Had a lovely little morning in the studio while the kids were at Mother's Day Out and Preschool. Five hours went by in the blink of an eye. I love that. Sometimes when I am painting I hit a groove where I am completely in the moment, filled with contentment. I often chase this same high when I'm running. I wait for it to find me when I practice yoga. That exhilaration of being completely present is what makes me feel complete.
I wanted to post some pics of a work in progress today, to show how things get done around my little studio. I have various easels but mostly work on the floor. Paint everywhere. Always with green tea. And lots of mellow music, today I was digging some old-school Cure. I am working on a new Gladiolas painting to trade with an artist who I have gotten to be friendly with, Jennifer Moreman. The one on the right with the cool colors, entitled, "Celebration", hangs in my private collection, and I hope to have something similar done for Jennifer with some fresh new colors. We're meeting to trade on Saturday. Fingers crossed I get it done!
