Hello. Hope you've been having a lovely long weekend (for those of you in the States, that is). We have here. My daughter came home for the weekend on Thursday night and my son had off Friday, so I've been checked out of most everything other than family since then. She's left to head back to school now, always a little sad to see her go, but it's also good to check back into the other parts of my life too. All as it should be, I suppose.
Before my week sort of stopped last week, I was spending a lot of time painting. I'm looking forward to getting back to it, hopefully, a little today even.
Some pieces saw good progress, and will be showing up in my etsy shop soon. Others, I found to be quite trying on my patience with my painting process.
I'd like to spend hour after hour, day after day, learning new things about paint, color, shape, tools, myself. I like the challenge of risking "ruining" what I like to see what else may develop. That said, often, I wish I could go backwards and undo, but I know that is not what this creative pursuit is about for me, but instead, I need to push through and discover something else. I'm also learning patience, with myself, with my ideas, with paint and process...or being presented the opportunity to learn it anyway...working on it. Always something to work on, but happy to be (mostly) enjoying the journey. Grateful that I have those that stop by here to share the journey and creative pursuits with. xo
