Now that I have a plan …..all I need is to work out some of the finer details. ..such as what subjects will I paint on the canvases which can be posted in tubes ? Should I get some of my kindle images printed? Would it be sensible to get more prints of my recent paintings?
And as I only have about 6 weeks before my self imposed, but sensible deadline shouldn’t I have started work by now?
I am blaming the melatonin pill I took last night when I couldn’t sleep. I have been a little dozy all day or alternatively nicely chilled.
I did get up at 6am , write some stuff, varnish the saint, some extra bits I painted in the shower room and the fruit painting. Then went out to meet a friend for coffee.
In the main street everybody was wearing masks. It occurred to me that we were all looking out for each other and that was a nice warm feeling. That is the good thing about wearing a mask. You might be saving someone’s life. After all you could be asymptomatic . I remember when we were locked down earlier this year thinking that I was being given the opportunity to help save people’s lives by staying home . It was a good feeling. Like today.
However I haven’t come up with any themes to work on so far . Most likely I will be doing something ordinary or watching an art video and have a sort of “eureka ” moment where I think , ” I could do that.” I know from experience stressing about it doesn’t help.
After “not stressing ” by lying about reading a book I thought I’d go paint my doorstep on my kindle. It feels like it’s been a remembering James day. It would have been his birthday. Yesterday I made a digital portrait of him . I always think of him when I sit on my doorstep and I put my wineglass on ” stone james”.
So I sat in the street and painted it. It looks quite a nice little work , but my kindle is being passive aggressive again and refusing to send it. 😔
Now I have drank the wine from the wineglass I used in the image. I always like to paint wine glasses from life. I have been putting them in quite a few of my recent paintings……
Better stop wittering on. Email has still not arrived and I have new nice wine from Anna Maria’s supermarket.
