Last night had me rushing to submit requirements for the August group show I’m a part of and it hit me that I only have about a month and half left to finish three more paintings.
As usual, I will be painting til the eleventh hour.
I really wish I could be one of those people who work at a steady pace instead of alternating weeks of sloth and days of manic frenzy. Part of it is, that I am a recovering lazy ass. Deep down inside I am lazy AF and constantly fighting it.
I always used to say that I was just waiting for inspiration, but a while back, Pallon gave me a proverbial slap on the wrist with this Picasso quote:
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.
While I’m trying to take that to heart this time around (I have a ruined wood panel to prove it!), I am (obviously) still finding it difficult.
Right now I am nursing a cold, and a cough, and a slight on-again-off-again fever, which only really adds to my sloth, but hear me, internets! Next week, I will be focused and I will finish these paintings by the second week of the August.
