Switch

Unfortunately, I continued to stumble along while trying to get my painting groove back. I'm not sure if it was just the vacation that threw me, or a combination of things. I painted in a bit on my Alice piece, but then it all started going wrong. I had to step away.

Ugh!

I worked on my other new business that I am starting (I've gotten my LLC and I'm finalizing numbers and more paperwork) right now, and that really is a distracting thing. It's a huge amount of work, and it's stressful. It's possible that this is part of what's bothering me right now. It'll be so much better once it's finally rolling (and I'll announce to everyone once it is, and explain what it is then with the grand opening. No idea when that'll be just yet.)

I guess with two businesses, I kind of have business ADD and it's a major distraction when it comes to the easel. Still, I decided I must do something to spark the art again! I thought about my watercolors, and that was appealing. I pulled out all sorts of blocks in different sizes, and I figured at the very least I can do another little dragon hatchling!

Instead, I started in on the biggest watercolor I've done yet (18x12"), it seems I can't do anything the easy way. It's not all sketched out yet, but it's in progress!



A unicorn and fairy. Now, I'm just trying to figure out the scenery, and then it's on to painting! I feel pretty good about it so far. Hopefully, it'll spark the drive to paint like crazy again. I've been splitting my week with Mondays and Tuesdays dedicated to the new business, and the rest of the week dedicated to my studio business. Hopefully I fall into that swing of things again!

For some reason, I had been missing your blog posts. I could only pull up your google page, so I am way behind on your doings. ANyway, your long faced Alice, beneath, is perfect to me. ( I have a long face too, but that's not why I like her) It has been such a long while since I have painted a person! Yours are always beautifully done! Have fun with your watercolors!
