It is nice to be painting again. It's always interesting to pick something back up after having put it down for so long. The old comforts and fluidity are gone but there is a basic memory that doesn't seem to ever go away. This was my fifth attempt at this painting and of course I could probably paint it a hundred more times and still find something I would change or do better. Whenever I am creating something I am also challenging my ability to accept what I am doing and who I am while I do it. It is a good teacher and a very frustrating and liberating practice.
I had a long holiday weekend. It is such a relief to wake up on a weekday and not have to snooze my alarm. I was able to get up, slowly drink my coffee, sit at my desk and paint and work on logo design before spending most of the evening with my family. Dustin and I are still trying to figure out how to create a life where I can work from home. It seems impossible sometimes but after a couple of weeks of many many photo shoots and tons of logo design work it feels a little closer. Thank you to everyone who has hired me to create and capture something for you!
Hope you have a great a Monday!
