I am on my 6th load of laundry and folding to old Sherlock Holmes movies...I am still in sweats and not planning on leaving my house today for any reason at all-although I have a sudden longing to see Alice. I spent an housr or so just drawing instead of trying to make a product. It was frustrating at first because my natural inclination is to try to do it do it perfectly and do it now. But just doing faces on one page over and over was kind of fun. Good for me...

I am feeling all achy and worn out and yet I know I should be getting things done. My kids both have tomorrow off so it feels more like a friday-and a lazy one at that. My first attempt at painting came up lousy today, but I looked at it as a learning process and kept at it until I produced something that looked somewhat like what I was aiming for!!!! and now I will gesso that out of my mind and off of my canvas-wouldn't it be great if we could just paint over our past life mistakes with a good coat of white and have a do-over!!

There was a call for art in a Newsletter I get that asked for Circus art-things that remind you of an amusement park. So I thought it might be fun. But as I started it I thought-really??? Do I really want to paint to an outside purpose for a show I may not get into but if I do I have to pay a fee???? On the other hand I think in illustrations so it was fun to whip this painting out of my head-in fact I have more fun doing that than alot of stuff-I think I will start to do illustrations for my own book. Self publishing is so easy now. I started working on a fairy coloring book and having lots of fun...and then came that know..what am I doing this for..who cares. Well, I care its fun and it can be sent out to all the little people in my life.....and that makes them happy!!!!! Off to ebay to post paintings!!! The sun is shining and the snow is melting
