It has been the kind of beautiful day that plein air landscape painters dream of. And artists have many tasks to do in order to keep the art part of their life functioning. That was today.
But I’ve been going through old journals. I’m working on a drawing that I hoped to show you tonight, that isn’t done. I’m cleaning up a bookshelf, and I’m going through my journals. Today I’ve been reading a journal that I wrote when my oldest was a baby. All I could think of then was when was I going to get a good night’s sleep.There are endless journal entries about being woken up at four in the morning. I was happy to find this because I know so many people going through the same struggle with a new baby, and sleepless nights.
I was also happy because there’s a kind of triumph at the end of the journal, when our baby is about 13 months old. He is walking, and running, and the happy drawing at the top of the page is the baby who sleeps through the night.
Have an enjoying a good sleep night.
