I’ve been feeling all out of sorts lately. And I have been having to take lots of breaks to lie down with a heating pad on my back and under my belly. Needless to say I haven’t had the energy to either work on books (falling behind again!) or paint.
I was feeling a little glum this afternoon and did not want to go lay down again. Nor did I want to work on binding or folding paper for journals. I knew that if I got the brushes in my hands and worked on an actual painting I would feel better. And I did! I worked on a little painting this afternoon. Still working on the title.
This was painted on a gallery wrapped canvas. I also started a larger painting- 20×24 inches.
Next year will bring a lot of changes for me. In addition to becoming a mother, which is huge, I will be working more towards transitioning to painting. I will continue to make books because I do enjoy that and amanobooks is kind of like my first baby and I just can’t abandon it. But I need to paint. I crave it.
