I think I might be a little shallow. Today when I went to collect my painting from the exhibition I was shown the very extravagantly beautiful trophy that I will receive at the prize giving at the next exhibition in August. In the Piazza.
I was smiling from ear to ear, under my mask. ( obviously I hadn’t missed anything after all.) The lovely organiser had even kindly attached a poem beside my painting which gave more meaning to my painting. I got my photo taken by the painting along with the second prize winner and walked proudly home clutching the card with 3d post and the number of votes. ( still smiling now😀😀😀)
Who was I kidding when I persuaded myself all that sort of thing didn’t matter.
I went back to the doctor this morning after fixing a small painting. At the last minute I put my stylus in my bag. When I got there , there were only 2 people waiting. There is no apparent time limit for an appointment so I got my stylus out and thought I would draw the 3 paintings and 3 chairs facing me. I was quite enjoying it when the first person was taken and then 5 minutes later the second. When it was my turn I was still putting my phone back in my bag and trying not to drop my glasses. Left feeling very satisfied and clutching my prescription . I always think that the person who comes after me must think kindly of me as I am only 2 minutes in and out. ( I have in the past felt less than kindly disposed towards someone who has taken up 45 minutes.)
Back home and I got to work on my newest painting. It is looking good. Tomorrow I plan to finish it off with some highlights and fix some small details.
And then I wrapped up the painting which am hoping to post to overseas tomorrow. I knew there was a good reason for not putting all my cardboard out to the bin.
Now after watering the flowers it’s wine time. ( not liking wine seems to have been temporary.)
