hits, and the weather turns warm, you have witnessed the
phenomenon we're facing at school right now. Spring
fever is a real thing and it's hit with a flourish only mother
nature could produce. In class you need a heaping helping
of humour, the kindness and understanding of the gentlest
of beings, and a determination to keep on course. Even so...
Tonight we had a second St. Patrick's Day for my youngest
because he missed it and loved it. Now we can take down
all the green garlands and redo the place with whatever
we've got for Easter. We're not religious, but my guys love
the bunny idea and the chocolate.
After school today I worked with my model. She is amazing,
but I was too tired to really even see. Still many people
have told me that keeping on keeping on is what makes an
artist. So I did. Maybe I have a bit of the crazies too.
Luckily I was certainly inspired by my model, and
that was a help. Still I did more rubbing off than leaving on
with the paint. That's painting too right? It's a game of
addition and subtraction, on and on until the thing
adds up to what feels complete. Not there yet, but I
also didn't expect to be.
Have a celebrating-your-holiday day.
