SPRING ANTICIPATION, acrylic on canvas, 40 x 40 cm.
The days are flying by. To many things want my attention, and I have said YES to many things other than creative work. Plenty of 'to do's! out there, and believe me, a guilty conscience is just a single word away.  That word is NO.  Not good at that one. We love our families and friends and need them like flowers need rain.....but unless I get to release the mess of info. that my brain absorbs by putting marks on paper or canvas, I get downright twitchy (new word, I think....related to bitchy).  With an exhibit coming up in August, I NEED to concentrate some serious, sustained effort on some half-way finished paintings. At least I am not oblivious to my situation and will not be caught in the headlights come July 31st. Saying 'no' is hard, but having understanding, encouraging people around me gives me the courage to let the dust bunnies party and turn over the dinner planning to less competent, but enthusiastic substitutes. I can do ice cream for dinner........
