Weekends are never my own it seems and this one has been no different. I wanted to get some more gyotaku work finished but only managed tiny inroads into that. I'll accept is as inevitable and keep trying. I need to make more studio/painting time for 2011and keep phone calls/email/other people at bay if I am to make progress in what is already a limited window of opportunity for painting.
After I got some major things done today, a couple more snowmen fell off the brush. Why I'm suddenly doing these I don't know. Quick, easy and mindless perhaps, with no one standing over me for time or need.
Sometimes its necessary to just do something for yourself and let everything else disappear. Its a form of relaxation and regaining of sanity for me quite often. I used to feel guilty about taking time for myself, but not anymore. Everything else can wait its turn or as a friend said, ' Make time to do what is necessary. The alternative is far worse.'
