06/12/2005: "Thieves suck!"
OK, I'm feeling totally crushed right now. I worked on the Trio painting last night and wanted to take a photo of it to show the changes and I couldn't find my camera anywhere. Then I remembered that yesterday I put it in my tracker, with the strap hanging over the "Oh Shit!" bar. I never put it there but my free case finally came in so I quit carrying it in my bag. So, I forgot that it was there and proceeded to go into all these shops, leaving it my unlocked car!
Well, it's not there now! I've looked all over the house, thinking, ok...I must have brought it in; I know it's here somewhere, but it isn't. I've looked everywhere. I feel so upset right now. I can't believe I just left my doors unlocked; normally I don't have anything of value in my car anyway. I can't afford to replace it either...I've already charged up a storm this summer...not to mention the fact I had the 256mb SD card in the camera, full of photos I hadn't transferred to my computer yet.
Also, last night as I was painting it dawned on me that I have a lot further to go before these pieces are finished. I mean, it's much easier to lay in broad strokes of color than to do all the little details that make a piece look finished...and the hands, OMG, there seem to be hundreds of little malformed hands in these paintings. I just keep repeating in my mind DON'T PANIC DON'T PANIC DON'T PANIC DON'T PANIC
Maybe some ABBA will cheer me up.
