I’m supposed to be at a tennis tournament right now. There are so many tournaments. I felt tired this morning, so I broke our usual protocol and will try and head over to the tournament later this morning, after some exercise and a little work.
I feel a wave of personal growth…it’s exciting. I feel that I am learning and growing, and trying so hard to be better every day than the day before. I feel good.. most of the pain has left my arm, although I still don’t have range of motion…but I am working on that.. and I feel a big change in my artistic work as well.
I completed this painting earlier in the week..it’s a new palette, a new direction all together and it is getting some pretty nice feedback from all my instagram friends already. I broke out some oil sticks out of the archives and was able to get them into this one.. I like the feel. They delay my process, but oil sticks may be something I reach for a little more.
General conversation last week led me to a local art shipper who will pack, insure and ship my art professionally for a reasonable extra charge. I think its worth it to be able to deliver exceptionally packed art to my collectors…and to get rid of the shipping department that has taken over my garage. I always end up eating some of the shipping expense with every sale because I never have just the right box… hopefully now that I have started a relationship with the local business, I can get rid of that headache.
Happy weekend..thank you for stopping by today.
