Tonight's post will be very short. I am still tired after the time change,
and the day flew by. It started in the morning with a Zoom with some
of my favourite women -- a super cheerful discussion. And then,
as so often is true, there was just too much going on.
The news from all over the world is dire, so tonight when I saw this
painting, just before I was heading to bed, I thought -- 'Yes!-- put
this on the blog tonight. I believe these flowers are from Ken Lander,
who runs the Sunrise Greenhouses with his partner, Maxine, in Pugwash,
I was also happy thinking about the painting tonight, because I started it in
2011, and finished it six years later in 2017. I didn't work on it solidly for
those six years, but it made me feel hopeful about paintings that develop slowly.
Have a loving your life day.
It is good to know I'm not alone in sometimes taking years to finish a painting :)
Not at all. I have a host of pandemic paintings, waiting for me to make the next move. I'm deciding the secret is not to get hung up (pardon my pun -- you know paintings -- hang on the wall), but to get curious and keep going. At the best of times that is painting!
