I slept in, exhausted still and so tired. Up for breakfast, filled in my food order for the next two nights, turned it in on deck five. What else do I have on my list today?
Artist loft 10 am. Room filled and so unable to start a project. I love the artists work, his fabulous work space. Note to self, come VERY EARLY if I want to paint! First come first served, so I can’t start today. Sigh. I am watching the process and lots of others who came early are diving in. We start today with drawing our project. Acrylics, watercolour or oils … All products needed are provided. Pastels, pencils and more.
Later: I jump in when a gal leaves, she offers me her place. I find an artist I like, a landscape. I draw. I decide to try my hand at acrylic … My first. I struggle with the idea of mixing color. I struggle with all the usual struggles I have at the start of a creation. I am done with struggle … I am seeking fun and confidence.
Free Spanish lessons, I miss the start so decide not for me this time. I miss needlepoint and the enrichment lectures. I miss spa presentation. I am now meeting Deb at noon to regroup.
Reflections: lighten up, loosened up and let play create!
Yup…you need to do nothing for a few days. It sounds to me that you are trying to do it all with no down time. You have not had a break. Keep it up and you’ll have burn out or get sick. I, for one would not want to see either. I care about you.
