Because of my day tomorrow, I must not linger tonight. I just hope I can sleep. I'm terrified of waking up at 2 in the morning because I've thrown myself off schedule and not being able to sleep. Oh well. If that happens, I'll deal with it. I wish I was getting more writing done. … Continue reading Dream journal?
Delay or just lurking?
I didn't mean to, but I think I took today as a lazy day. I just can't seen to get too excited about doing anything. Unfortunately, that might be delaying the finishing of my Arlyn story. On the other side, I have been journaling about restarting my art today. That's such a struggle. And yet, … Continue reading Delay or just lurking?
Values or just fake numbers
Dean Wesley Smith often repeats Mike Resnick’s saying. “If you aren’t earning $500 per day, you are not having a good day.” For the last month, I have really taken this advice to heart. I admit that I’ve modified it compared to the way he’s using it. I’ve been using it as a gauge for … Continue reading Values or just fake numbers
Photos that sit
I spent my painting time today photographing to catalogue them. I was glad to find that the one I thought I’d mid-numbered wasn’t actually numbered. For some reason, maybe an alternate universe sliding over, I never actually put the sequence on it, never written it on the substrate. I don’t know why I thought I … Continue reading Photos that sit
All good things in time
So, last night I fully intended to wake early, get my 1,000 words in, then spend the rest of the day painting. I fully thought I’d be start painting about 11:00 this morning. Yeah. Here’s what really happened. I had a hard time waking up and didn’t manage to stay awake until 9 this morning. … Continue reading All good things in time
Painting and more
I broke out the airbrush today. Yes, I feel like I spent more time cleaning up than actually using it, but I got some results I’m very happy with. I also stocked up on canvases today. Or I thought I had. (Grin) The picture at the top of the blog was half of a full … Continue reading Painting and more
Words and templates
I’ve been focusing on words today. I’ve been half wondering if that is fear of stepping up to the easel. I’m going to write a quick blog, then I’m going to go prove myself wrong, even if I only get a little bit of painting done today. I will get to the easel. Last night, … Continue reading Words and templates
As stated last night, I wanted to do another painting with the same composition. So, today I started that, but I changed it up a bit. I figured if foreground was bugging me, let there be more of it. And maybe I kept it simple, but baby steps. So the picture at the top of … Continue reading Foreground training
Last night was hard. When I write my blog, I didn’t want to admit how I’d been completely stopped on the painting I’d been working on. As much as I wanted to write last night after finishing the blog, I found it hard to sit down and start the process after the depressing stop to … Continue reading Gold star
I decided to go back to town to continue my shopping today. I tried to make it quick. Here’s my happy co-pilot: Then I spent the afternoon painting nebulae. I finished one (or very early because I still have edges to do) and have three more in process. Then I tried numbering some paintings and … Continue reading Happy co-pilot
