Today I spent a little over 2 hours painting. That is about the norm for the last 2 weeks or so. It’s been so nice to get the brushes wet, turn on my Fleet Foxes Pandora station and disappear into the studio for a little bit. It’s amazing what a couple hours of focused art can do for a person.
For me, since I paint landscapes primarily, it is an opportunity to focus on the beauty that is around me. Sometimes days, weeks and years seem to fly by. With painting, however, it is available to capture a single moment in time- and hold it there. It’s kind of like getting the opportunity to breathe in that fresh air again.
In the last 2 weeks I have started 7 new paintings and completed 3. It’s been a great challenge to stay motivated, focused and energetic. Here is what I have so far:
This week I have already completed another 6×6 small work that isn’t pictured here. It will be fun to see what I can finish in the limited NapTime that I have.
