11/05/2005: "Because I want to"
If I needed any personal reassurances as to why I'm so motivated to make art, I'm over it this morning. Last night I stayed up until almost 4:00am working on the fiddlehead fern painting, the colors in my photo don't look quite right but I know how the paintings going to look when it's finished and I think this is my favorite that I've done in a long time. I was having such a good time working on it I lost all track of time.
The second one is one I'm working on for a friend. She lives on a hillside overlooking the pump house and sort of commissioned me to do one with the pump house in it.
Now I have to wait for them to dry before I can do anything else on them, but that doesn't keep me from starting a new one. While I'm painting this morning I'm also watching "Miracle" about the year the US hockey team beat the Soviets. I'm trying to get in the mood to go and see a friend play tomorrow. I actually know nothing about hockey so maybe this show will help.
