I Have It Anyway



Drawn In, 2006, Oil on Panel, 12x12











Even though I said that I didn't have time for a proper post show meltdown, I am pretty much having one this week. Which is totally ridiculous because I have so much to do. Not just painting, though there is that too, but stuff around the house; getting the kids all set for school next week and various art related things like paperwork and delivery of work to a local art event. I haven't done anything this entire week but sit at the computer and read websites like websleuths.com and searching through blogs to see what people are saying about Rockstar Supernova and whether Dilana has lost her chance to win and why Ryan got eliminated this week. (So now y'all now that I have the brain of a teenager.)

I did manage to separate myself from my beloved computer yesterday in order to go shopping with the girls and today I actually squeaked out four large under paintings, but that is it. Pathetic! I can't even eat a batch of stupid cookies to get out of this meltdown because I stopped eating sugar and carbs last Monday (I had gotten a little wacky with the sugar) but even the fact that I had to quit cold turkey is pathetic.

So again, as I do with almost everything, my resolution is to start again on Monday and kick some butt. Paint, clean, organize, fill out paperwork, shovel chicken shit and weed the garden. Oh wait, I forgot Monday is a holiday. Better make it Tuesday, or maybe next Monday....

PS. I am writing this on Thursday evening and am dog tired (you know, from my busy day at the computer). After a good night's sleep, tomorrow will be all bright and shiny and I will again feel optimistic about accomplishing something. Don't worry.

Wow, what a trilling painting. I'd swear your work was pastel, but clearly it's oil. Would love to see one in person. Do you ever show in the San Francisco area?

Hi Ed, Thanks! I have worked in pastel, although not landscapes, that's on my list of things to do:-) I don't have any galleries representing my work anywhere out west, unfortunately. One of these days I may pursue that (I am spread kinda thing right now) but for now you'll just have to travel east to see my work!!

Thanks, Lesly so sweet of you to say that! As I knew they would be, things are much brighter this morning, except for the damn cookie/sugar thing:-)

Bart, start here and then you can do a blog google search to find people who are talking about the show. It's not a super popular show here, but I like it, maybe because it is kind of hokey and not popular. Dilana is one of the singers, she has been the frontrunner, but lately she has been losing ground, I think.

Hi Tracy! I am also an artist living in upstate NY, and I've seen your work in person at Gallery 100, and it is beautiful! So glad I found your blog!

Glad you stopped by Takeyce and I am pleased that you have been to Gallery 100. Thanks!
