Now I have several paintings to do, and I have the canvas primed and ready to go, but I have no energy! I think it must be the shorter kind of dreary days of fall. We’ve spent some time repairing a wall in our store and everything is looking fresh and new. I could take some inspiration from this feeling and actually do a painting about this change of season. I’m writing this down to remind myself that I feel this way every year.
Mind Dance is a painting I did in 1997. I’m sure I was feeling the same way then as I do now. It’s comforting to know that I’m seasonally consistent. Writing journals are great, but sometimes a painting is simply greater at catching a feeling.
