Starts, Finishes, Stops, and Deletes

9:35 PM

Today, and the weekend, has been just that - a series of starts, finishes, stops and deletes. I spent the better part of Saturday and Sunday getting caught up and up to date in the office. Receipts, paperwork, orders, etc. All the stuff that didn't get taken care of for the last few months. Paperwork is the bane, well, one of the banes, of my existence. I am clutter-challenged and it's my own doing. However, I felt 10-foot tall and bullet proof when my husband asked me for something and I reached into a folder and there it was! Victory!!

Today, I have attempted to write this post - three times. It is nothing like what I had intended. The other two posts were saved. Then deleted. My thoughts were so scattered and disconnected as to not make sense even to me. Not sure what's up with that but I won't subject you to my misspellings and ramblings. More ditziness I suppose.

I have two pieces of art on the go and both are in the extreme ugly stage. One is so bad it may go into the bin. I decided I wanted to do something for the Etsy shop, something I could "play" with while I'm working away on the competition piece. So I decided to do a small 4" x 4" flower on Aquaboard, made by Ampersand. The surface is suppose to be easy to paint on. And for some people I suppose it is. Karen Vernon makes it look falling-off-a-log-easy. And maybe with time and practice, I'll get the hang of it. Until then, this piece is probably going in the bin as there is no other side to paint on.

The competition painting is coming along in fits. At the moment, it looks hideous. Maybe it will look different (better) in the morning. For whatever reason, I'm suddenly value-challenged. Why? Dunno. But it's really putting a cramp in my painting style, I can tell you that! I think the problem is the painting in my head is not matching up to the one on the table. Of course, the one in my head is perfect and the values are exquisite. The one on the table is . . . . imperfect.

Thank goodness tomorrow is another day to do it all over again, and it is my strong intention to make it a great day!
