Look at that. I took a little break and next thing I know, an entire month has passed!
Sometimes breaks are needed. Sometimes I spend my mornings straightening up the studio, making lists, answering emails, and not even worrying about art. Sometimes I just need to set aside a painting to let my mind rest. Sometimes that idea needs to percolate a little longer...
Because there's the idea. It's on canvas. It's alive and real and staring you in the face saying "Finish! Now!" but you've got no idea where to go.
Then it gets picked up and you trudge through the yucky feelings. Just make some marks on the canvas, get back to painting, finish!
