A few thoughts when all you want to do is paint.
Whatever time you plan to stop painting to prepare dinner, stop sooner because food prep and cooking always take longer when you’d rather be painting.
Rinse your brushes in turp and cover your palette before leaving your studio. Something will always keep you from returning in a timely manner.
Keep a clean paper towel near your phone to use when you answer another robo call.
The dog will always be on the wrong side of the door so another piece of paper towel is needed for the door handle.
A few hurried brushstrokes will undo an hour’s work.
Unexpected company will arrive when you’re wearing your painting clothes and forgot to comb your hair.
This same company thinks you’d rather sit and “chit chat” instead of paint.
You understand why Paul Gauguin ran away to a remote tropical island. It’s better than cutting off your ear.
Thankfully there’s always tomorrow.
