Frames #1001, 2010, Oil on Birch Panel, 12x16
Well. Ahem. Yes, it has been three weeks since I last posted. Every single day, I thought about posting, but didn't. Couldn't? Not sure which anymore. I can't say I have been too busy either, as I have been spectacularly unproductive lately. And while I don't want to end this blog, it does periodically occur to me that maybe I will.
But today is Monday, a good day to turn over a new leaf and I am going to try again and get my mojo back. For the blog, for my work, for my life in general. Sounds dramatic, eh??? Well, like I said; spectacularly unproductive lately. Not only am I not working in the studio enough, I am not even doing the projects around the house that I usually complain about not having enough time for, even though I have had all the time in the world lately.
So I have decided to start with to-do lists. Public to-do lists. I don't normally keep a formal to do list, but well, desperate times here. I do NOT like being spectacularly unproductive. The plan is to post a to-do list for each week, on Mondays and update my progress each day. I am hoping that this will get me posting here again and also help me get some stuff done.
Well, here we go. My list of things to-do this week (in addition to regular stuff like driving kids, making dinner, scooping cat litter and feeding chickens and um, keeping up with Facebook):
Finish the 10 paintings that are in progress, starting with the six that have been sitting here, halfway finished for at least three weeks.......
Finish prepping panels.
Do some drawing for at least a half day.
Start at least one new 'People You Know' painting.
Do seven more Black Paintings on the 6x9 inch panels that have been sitting here for a whole MONTH.
Load new paintings on to my sales blog, and do some other things, like ordering supplies, etc.
CLEAN the house.
Hem the new curtains for my daughter's room, the curtains that are still sitting in the shopping bag on the dining room table, exactly where I set them down when I got home from buying them 3 WEEKS AGO.
Make a few appointments that I have been lazy about making. Dentist, vet, etc.
Have lunch with a friend. I have been spectacularly antisocial lately as well.
Get out in the garden and plant spinach and lettuce seeds in the cold frame.
This seems like a lot to me, especially since I am pretty much starting at zero. Heh. But it's nowhere close to what I used to accomplish in a week and it is stuff that I really do need to get done, so this is my list and I am sticking to it.
PS. I do realize that I would be spectacularly productive if I had anything whatsoever on the exhibition schedule for the upcoming year, but that is a post for another day;)
