One week into the third month of my One Painting Per Week For A Year project, and I am possibly three weeks behind on posting the images. It’s one thing to get the painting completed to my satisfaction in a week, another to get it photographed, and another to sit and blog about it. So, I’m going with two images here, and will get to last week’s painting in another day or so. And, if magic is my friend, and I do believe that it is, I will post this week’s painting by the end of the day Sunday. I have evidently been doing overtime with David Lusk Gallery lately, and this has kept me less than available enough to offer energy towards this pet project. Last night, when describing my current studio practice to someone, I stated that I was “half invested in being lost,” and that this was a problem. I have no issue at all with being “lost” in the studio practice, but with only being halfway there, I am uncomfortable. I need more time to wander down the wormholes and into the mistakes and misfires. I have sacrificed the last three Mondays, which are my only extended hours in the studio, for other duties in my life, and I had big plans for March 7. Then, a high-grade fever landed on my daughter, and I will be tending to her at home… And, the long studio day will have to wait another week. In the meantime, I will do what needs to be done, and I can now cross this off my list. Thank you for checking in, and reading to the end.

Effort counts for much. I am a true believer in that. Thought also counts for much, as does research. When the TIME is there . . . you will be bursting with creativity ready to flow (I know, I just had a 3 year hiatus of pain). Stay encouraged. I would be so upset at every missed deadline and then I realized, I did what I could DO, and I COULD NOT ask myself to do more than that. It was so great seeing you at David Lusk Saturday!
