4"x 6" watercolor
Studio price: $250.
I am having a struggle getting back into the swing
of painting every day. I do not battle it often but
every now and then I simply do not feel like it.
I had three hard shows in a row, two in rain and
then heat with crowds not really interested in my
work. We artists are so fragile. I am a bit down
because I had to dig into my new van fund to cover
my health insurance and mortgage this month.
I had plans... To put it in a way you can understand...
you went to work for the past three weeks but did not
receive a paycheck... kinda blows a budget!
OK, that is the extent of my whining, Linda was not
listening to it so I thought I would look to you for a
bit of sympathy!
I tell my fellow artists, simply sit down and paint which
is what I did today. I went with a subject that is
familiar to me. A Shaker room with a dress hanging
a table and window. Shades of blue... (no pun intended!)
On a lighter topic, someone asked to see our garden.
They live is a small NYC apartment and was interested
in our little corner of paradise. Our yard is not large
but Linda has it packed with flowers. Right
now it is alive with pinks, purple and white. The little
pond is staying clean and the fish seem happy. I see
buds on the waterlilies. Linda is her happiest out there
pulling weeds and I reap the benefits!
