I am ready for winter to finish up.
I know lots of people feel this way towards the end of winter, but for me summer is just as bad.
The extreme temperatures finally take their toll, the harsh summer sun, the endless winter colds, the constant energy sapping sun, the feeling of never being cool or warm enough.
I seem to become restless, unmotivated, unfocused - I go down to the studio, sit there for five minutes and them come back up stairs, finding no inspiration, feeling just bleh!
So on Wednesday I had had enough of my own company, and sat down to paint something. Even if it was a mess of colour + I found a sketch I had done weeks ago which I had planned to paint (weeks ago)
Awesome! It made it easier to just paint, the hard work was done + it was just a matter of process now, to become lost in the familiarity of the movement, the smells, the tinkling of brushes of the water jar.
Just what my soul needed.
