The days, though longer in sunlight, seem to be fleeing with as much speed as lightning and are as filled as our ponds these rainy weeks. I can hardly find time lately to breathe let alone paint, and I can tell it's taking a toll of my tranquility! I painted this earlier this spring .... and though I am painting larger images more frequently, I'm finding it harder and harder to get to the painting table as often, or as long, as I'd like. Life, as they say, has a way of moving one in other directions.
Still, each day I do put paint to paper, but can't get to finishing a work for several days .... then something else pops up before I have time to post it ... ah well, this will pass ... I just hope it passes quickly, I am missing that 'zone' I am able to get into when painting that really helps me relax and dream.
This weekend will be another busy one. We'll be visiting my daughter and grands and take in a dance recital for both of them -- adorable!! It will be a quick visit and I'm looking forward to seeing the girls since we haven't seen them since the holidays. They're growing so fast!!! Our phone conversations have taken on that 'adult' tone that seems to move children from simply "Hi Nonna" -- to real "Guess what I did this weekend" chats! Wonderful -- but will be even better to see them.
Hope you have a great week... stay dry...
