Feels like too much on the go!
I put nails in the beams to hang works, they need light for the oil to cure properly... what am I doing? There are 21 paintings in various states of completion all over the studio. This is crazy.
But I am preparing to have a solo show - yippee!! - so I need to produce the work, and the work needs to cure before I can varnish it for the show.
Ah, I am overwhelmed lately.
We bought a house and have been renovating for the last few months. Feels like we've been camping for months on end. My head is busy, busy, I can't sleep. At this moment the house is an albatross but soon it will emerge a swan! However, living in the present as I do it's hard to see past the albatross sometimes.
Yesterday I went into the studio very early and worked on flower paintings. How nice. No pressure with those. Met a friend for lunch. Ran some errands. Went back to our albatross and continued with the slow process of transformation. Took some photos at various times of the day.
