NOT GOING TO BE READY



She's not going to be ready in time to enter the Viewpoint show.  As the kids say, "Whatever!" 

I've got lots of excuses, including Mom being put into the hospital again, then my getting sick with a cold that turned into a sinus infection.  Mom's back home (with oxygen this time) and I saw the doctor Monday and got some good meds for this so am on the mend. 

Let's see, what else could I use as an excuse? ha ha 

When I decided not to let this stress me, I didn't and I won't.  It won't be ready in time.  I don't like anything else enough to try to get it in.  So...now I have to be thinking about other things and I'll work on this when I feel like it.

I like the crow on this one :)  Maybe she'll be ready for the watercolor society summer show in July.

Coming along splendidly, Rhonda. Too bad it will miss the show. Good thoughts and prayers coming your way.

Rhonda, this has the makings of a great painting! Take your time with it. And take time with yourself - be better soon!

It sure is looking fabulous though! So freeing not to have deadlines, yes?

Thanks for much, Carol, Kathryn and Sherry, for you continued support - now that the pressure is off me, I can go and work a little every day on this (if I want to). I am one stubborn painter and I'll never be rich or famous - I know how much hard work and stress is involved in doing all the things you have to do to get your work out there all the time.

I really like the crow in this one too as well as the position of the lady. I agree with the others on taking your time on this. Honestly, watercolors are tricky, but you do such a wonderful job. I'm looking to your words of advice too on being more gentle with my own self. It is easy to feel like one has the clock as an enemy....tick, tick.

Oooo, crow looking marvelous. Love the play of colors working. A little here, a little there and all of a sudden the paintings done and with no stress... your time with it will flow.

Thanks, Tina and Pam :) It will get done in time, I'm sure. I guess every painting may have it's own time and we can't push too hard or we'll ruin it!
