I don't have school on Thursdays, so this afternoon I'm staring down a long to-do list, gulping my coffee and praying for even just a fraction of "supernatural" strength to get it all done! And just as I settle in to dedicate the next hour of my girls' nap-time to the (somewhat tedious) task of slowly adding more listings to my newly re-opened Etsy shop (the "business" aspects of art--specifically pricing--are simply NOT fun) I hear an unfinished painting calling to me.
It's been three or four days since I splashed and swirled my watercolors. I've been spending most of my free-time turning the apartment upside-down, trying to get organized for better cleanliness and efficiency (and hoping soon to share some photo peeks into my home-art-studio).
Now my drawing table is tempting me from it's new station directly in front of the big picture-window where I can see the dark clouds moving in while the trees dance in the cool wind, preparing their leaves to play the music that always happens under the percussion of raindrops . . .
"Business" will have to wait. I think in this hour I simply MUST paint.
And I will look forward to tomorrow, when I'll share more progress on this painting and the inspiration behind it!
