It’s Wednesday after Easter vacation, and I just can’t seem to get my act together. Oh I have been to work. Duty calls! However I have an assignment for my classes which I need to work on, and a lot of reading to do. I am just struggling to get my motivation up to do the things on my to do list.
The artistic side of me is working overtime however. Instead of doing my homework this afternoon all I wanted to do was paint. I was feeling very creative, and I believe the lack of sleep (from working nights) opened my emotions up and made them easer to express on the canvas. I’m sorry the photo isn’t quite right, the piece is much more symmetrical then the photo shows, that is because of having to hold the camera at an angle, and I’m afraid the dark color creates a reflection with the use of the flash. You will get the general idea though.
Today’s piece is called “Hiding in shame”
While I am exposing my artwork I will post the one which I painted a couple weeks ago. A more positive piece I might add.
This one has grown on me quite a bit. Sometimes my works have to sit in the kitchen (my favorite room) for a while so I can get to know them. I believe I will be framing this one up this week. Then I must find a home for it and the two others I have framed up (which are currently also living in the kitchen) but it takes me awhile to get a feeling for where the piece “belongs” as well. My poor family living with my crazy temporary galleries!!
Okay – I am now going to dig up some motivation to do some work….however I do have this fantastic book I am reading….JUST KIDDING!!! (I think)
UPDATE! I am not the only one feeling creative today, must be something in the air. RennyBA and Dackel Princess are hooking up!! No not what you are thinking (smile) take a look and see how their care package exchange went and leave your greetings to them both!! Blogging – Connecting People!!
