busy week




Here are some images from my busy week. I have taken shots fro 4 paintings, finished and nearly finished.
This week's theme for me was autumn flowers, images created from the last flowers of the season. Some were added to spring petal pages for variation of colour and shape.

Mojo

I seem to have got my Mojo back, over the past few months I have had oodles of ideas but no Mojo to do them. Well all that has changed, my time is split between working with Husband, teaching and painting; it has been hard to prioritise the painting as income must come first.
I gave myself a good talking to and have decided to deal with things head on, this means less exhibitions as they wear me out and more time spent on painting for me; this won't be easy with family and work but it will mean less deadlines and running around. Pheew. Now that that decision has been made I can enjoy painting again, so often as artists we feel obligated to exhibit work to sell, sometimes that dictates our whole waking hours, by deciding to do less, I will do more, income will come not from painting pictures but from what i do outside of that. My paintings will spring to life as I will not be thinking commercially but painting the things I love in the style I love. I have cleaned the kitchen and am off to paint.
