This summer is getting away from me and I feel like I've barely made a dent on my "to paint" list. I started this painting a month ago,but it's been 2 weeks now since I've touched it. I feel like I'm being pulled in 10 different directions with custom work, wholesale orders, e-mails, web orders, some sales tax junk I keep putting off... all good stuff (minus that tax thing- grrrr) and I'm grateful to be busy! But this unfinished painting is starting to haunt me. It keeps catching my eye when I'm working on something else, staring back at me with big blank gaps and begging for a little attention. I'm even starting to feel sorry for it. That's a little (or maybe a lot) weird so I'm vowing to carve out time for this painting before I develop some sort of anxiety problem. I've got to hurry anyway before the giddy excitement I have about working on this piece fizzles into apathy and I merely feel obligated to finish what was started. To help me hold myself accountable, I'm publicly declaring a "finish by" date: September 5th... Let it be so!
My new neighborhood. We've loved living in midtown this summer!
