Almost There

Purple Colored Mountains. 2006, Oil on Panel, 30x24

This is one of the five pieces that I am supposed to be finished with by Friday in order to send the jpegs to Anderson-Soule Gallery in Concord, NH. I have three that turned out really nice and one that is iffy as of today. I will be spending today and tomorrow working on that one plus two more just in case, plus a couple more to send off to a few other galleries. I am happy that I am almost finished with these paintings so that I can return to my regular painting schedule. It will also be nice to shake the constant feeling of how much I have to do, which hovers over me whenever I try to do non-painting related things lately. I may just spend a whole day next week reading and/or knitting. I am also itching to rearrange my studio a bit-I think I have figured out a way to make some room in order to work on larger panels.

I am still also hoping to write up a post about the weekend in the city (for now, you can check out James Wolanin's blog, he wrote about Saturday evening), but I may not be able to get that posted until Thursday afternoon or maybe even on Friday. In fact, I think I may have to start posting in the late afternoons anyway because clearly I am unable to limit my computer time in the mornings which is really messing up my work schedule. I sit down in my stupid yet really comfortable computer chair in the morning after the kids leave for school, check a few blogs, read a few sites, one thing leads to another and before I know it, half the day is gone.

So tomorrow I must go cold turkey-I will check my emails (I can't believe how many of you post comments at one in the morning!), read the news and then walk directly into my studio by 8am.

Well, that's the plan anyway.....

I want a computer that has a timer on it - after a certain amount of time the thing should just shut down and not work anymore - forcing me to get back to work.

Good luck with finishing these pieces.

I'm way behind on blogs but I was going to tell you that I jinxed my summer vacation and the barf thing. Not once but twice - it was totally a kid vacation. I will NEVER again discuss that topic right before we leave!

Terri, Glad to know that it's not just me!

A timer is perfect for those of us with little to no self-control:-)

Ooh, bummer about the jinx, Was it you or Meno who said that it's not a real vacation until someone pukes?:-)
