Theresa and Darwin are coming home tonight. I have been laying around all day. In fact, I haven’t done a single bit of cleaning to get ready for their arrival. I am just too worn out today. I guess my body is calling for a day off. But right now I can’t really do that. I have several art shows in March….several deadlines. I think to myself “I am on the edge of being burnt out. I don’t wanna be in the studio at all.” I just wanna sit around and watch movies on Netflix for like a week. I canceled my therapy apt. for today…I don’t wanna drive around or go anywhere. Then it hits me….I need to do something for someone. How many times has a gift changed my whole day? Hmm…who? Darwin and Theresa! I get some groceries….And a package of cookie dough. I will make them some EZ cookies. That will be nice. That’s about all I got today.
I didn’t end up making the cookies because we opened a box from my mom. It was a Valentine’s Day gift….Chocolates! I wasn’t about to make cookies too. I guess today is all about my intention. Some days are harder than others to get outside of myself and make any sort of effort. I find it acceptable to at least make the effort. In the past that was not always the case. Tomorrow will be a better day.
This was a fun little painting. I love me some elephants….I thought of the phonograph after he was painted. It seemed like a great fit. Maybe it is a visual representation of what I am listening to as I paint tonight….ISIS. One of my favorite bands. Big heavy, slow moving, post rock. Probably. Take care.
