It's Been a Good Wallow

Ok, so I admit to wallowing in my current post show meltdown. I was planning to ignore this one but well, I chose not to I guess. Heh. I floundered around last week, doing nothing particularly constructive and didn't even feel bad about it. Well, maybe a little, but that was just out of habit. I did start two portraits on Thursday. I was feeling a bit lukewarm about them and decided not to do any more until I had a chance to think about them a bit, then Doug came up and said he didn't like the cropping. Blech! But today, after looking at them again, I have decided to keep working on them. The worst that will happen if I do that, is that I might figure out a few things about this series. Oh and will probably have to add two more sucky paintings to the sand down pile, which I am totally used to doing. Not a bad worst case scenario.

And on Sunday I decided to do a whole bunch of Horizon Line paintings. A few larger ones along with about 10 very small ones, which will be divided between my sales blog and the little shop at the local arts organization.

So I am pulling out of this stupid meltdown and good thing too because I really have much to do, even though my next show isn't until August. First and foremost, I need to find some additional gallery representation, I have let that go WAY too long!

But of course this week is spring break for the kids and so I know that I will not be able to get too much done, but whatever. Will probably squeeze in a few hours in the studio between my duties as cruise director and/or referee!

Sometimes it's good to indulge in a good wallow. :) It gets it out of the way.

Tis easy to wallow when it is still stinking COLD out there.

Your wallowing is actually encouragement for me to realize successful, creative and admired artist have dips in their lives too. All the dips and potholes in life do make us appreciate the straight and smooth roads when we come upon them don't they? hugs.

Wallowing is good for the soul sometimes. Everyone needs their moment and then you get on with it.
