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.
