Sometimes a painting
...comes easily, other times not. I started a new work today and it's already driving me bananas. At 2 p.m. I plunked the brush down mid-stroke and went to The Orange Toad for coffee. When things go well in the studio, I indulge in celebratory food. When things don't go well, I indulge in consoling food. So I ordered a raspberry pear muffin. It was almost as big as my head! Ok. Maybe that's exaggerating a bit, but it was huge. And delicious. I was smiling in no time. I still have to head back to the studio to clean up. H was in there a little while ago and said he thinks the painting is off to a good start. I hope he's right.
