Meanwhile, back at the studio. I had moved all work-in-progress to the spare room, cleaned the floor, and put a bunch of stuff out of the way---ha--on the work table. Well now I am here moving all that stuff to start the paperwork. On the good side, I spent a lot of time yesterday uploading "watermarked" images of my work and deleting the unmarked images. I am also doing the same on Pinterest, but am having trouble with the uploaded images showing as blank spaces until clicked on. I do not like the "maintenance" part of having a website, but it is a necessary evil.
All this commentary is to illustrate that I have stuff in the way and I have to make a conscious effort to not let it derail me for too long or I lose my painting momentum . Once that happens, it is much more difficult to start again. That is one of my reasons for having a couple of paintings in progress so it doesn't take as much planning---just pick up the brush and remember what the original plan was. If you are also an artist and reading this, do not become disheartened by getting derailed. If you are friends or just interested in how art is created, it sometimes a roundabout process!
