2021 in Pisticci….got a plan….

My little garden is taking up a lot of my thoughts just now. It is distracting me from my real job ,which is painting commissions.

I have finished 3 so far , more or less, and am part way through a big one and have drawn the next little one.

Am just saying all this am obviously feeling guilty that I’m not spending all my time painting.

Now that I have got that out of the way , I have a plan for my two sad looking wooden chairs and the strawberry plants.

I would like to paint them some colour. I’m not sure which colour so I used my paint app to try turquoise and brown. Then I thought the pots looked a bit boring so wondered if they would look prettier painted . That was quite exciting. I can use white paint from the hardware shop mixed with acrylic paint and that should work well. I might even varnish the chairs.

The weather is looking good for the rest of the week. And I am saving on heating if I am outside….. I can paint pictures in the afternoons. After all I am in a red zone so no one will be getting their commissions any time this week.

Talking of being in a red zone. It will be reviewed on the 6th of March. Then we could go to orange. I had better make the most of the time.

After getting up early and editing from 6am this morning I thought I should definitely paint my pansies on my tablet. It was a bit chilly ,but I enjoyed it. It is nice doing my own stuff . I could get a bit overwhelmed with all the other work.

I am so trying to convince myself to spend time painting chairs…..I can hear the little voice in my head saying, ” It will be good for your mental health dear.” And ” you already have the paint so it won’t cost anything” and finally, ” if you are happy you will paint pictures better and quicker.”

Am virtually sure now that it will benefit all my commissioned work as well as my state of mind if I spend several hours painting chairs…..and flower pots.🤣🤣🤣🤔

That looks like my plan for tomorrow.

Now it’s wine time. 🍷🍷 Cheers. 😀😀

The plan….
This morning’s painting of my pansies.
