Carry This (GP2_Feb_20)

feb_20Theresa 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.

This piece was bought by Dylan Tarre.

    Good morning to ya! If this painting is still available, I will buy. 🙂 I LOVE it. I make stuffed elephants with my 6th grade class and I would so love to hang this in my classroom! I am at Steiner college this week taking book binding classes. They are SO cool!

    Thanks for being so freaking amazing!
