Wow! By the time I have stopped for dinner, (The DOG reminded me), I had a pretty good start on JUMP! I am "channeling" her enthusiasm as I'm working, and had lost track of the time.
It is rare that I have an entire day to actually spend in my cubby, so I was determined to make the most of it. I cleaned while paint was drying, organized, and rearranged my work space so I could be comfortable sitting (or standing) longer. Jeanne Brenneman, a very talented artist, and generous teacher, once told me: "There's more work in the studio than just painting" -- I totally agree! It is hard to maintain concentration when you are sitting in clutter. I think Jeanne would be proud!
I've had a FABULOUS day, and hope to finish this painting in time for the WVWS Juried Aqueous Exhibit in May. It seems to be painting itself, which I guess I can put down to all the planning and drawing I did before-hand. (Another lesson it took me a while to learn!) Thanks, Linda Turner!.
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
