Yay, Monday is over!
So, the stress in my life continues…coming up on the first Mother’s Day without my mom, and my dog(pictured) is having major surgery next week.
What’s an artist to do when they don’t feel creative? I’ve found the best thing for me to do is get off my behind and force myself to paint. It doesn’t matter if it’s horrible or fabulous…I will surely get into a bad habit if I don’t paint for at least an hour a day. I have several pieces that I’ve started, and they are all in various stages of completion (pictured). I really hate when I do this, so my vow to myself is to complete those paintings…all of them!…by the weekend.
I’m still working on the mini oils, but I am also working on a large 30 x 24 landscape. The small paintings are so easy and QUICK! I could easily get addicted to completing a painting every day! At least I’m well on my way to my goal of 100 by October.
I’m also still on a mission to get into a gallery. Yesterday, I emailed one that is over an hour away, but as long as I don’t need to go more than once every month, it’s a great option. Keep your fingers crossed that they let me in!
Until next time, have a great day!
