i know i said i would attempt to blog everyday but i am thinking every other day now.. i am not going to capitalize my 'i's' because my sleeve will go into my paint if i move that way. my recent canvas is sitting in front of my this, studio laptop.
i also am finding the joy of typing a draft in the morn and not publishing until i have some kind of photograph to show for myself. yesterday i took some photos of the baby tiger, canary hastening back into it's nest. just like i did out of sheer exhaustion of pushing myself too hard re: paint and fiddle.
basically most capitol letters are out while i am typing in this manner.
i learned something valuable yesterday and this morning....(ice is falling off my roof right now)....the art of not working too hard. that's right. that's what i said. i think it is un natural to work to the point of too much. what is called for is a focus and refocusing of a particular goal, intended progress ----- not the overdoing.
i'm serious about this.
I think I finished the painting just now so now I can cAP.
There are plenty of environmental pressures that seem to squeeze in on my cells sometimes propelling me towards a desperate enbarkment - a ridiculous journey even for my mind, before I make a move. The best way to deal with this while it is occurring is to either clean up something and through out old stuff, or take a nap.
