Not always, but the other day I sat down for a good HOUR and planned out my days (68 days to be exact). I have at least five major projects balanced on a stick and I am not willing to not finish them all before Christmas. This is me telling you if you don't hear from me until the new year, now you know why.
Today I started (yes STARTED) painting the piece inspired the words submitted for my Painting Contest (I am so clever with naming things). I want to get this one done particularly soon because I want it to be ready for selling in December. WHY? Need I remind you that 1/3 of what the painting sells for is going to SOS Children's Villages Canada? I'm still giddy about this project.
So today I was painting away and then realized it was 2pm and I hadn't had lunch yet. I got up to make lunch and next thing I know, I'm back on my stool with a giant bag of chips swinging from my hand and a paint brush in the other one.
I also wanted to mention that I am using Holbein DUO paints (no, they are not paying me to say that). They were referred to me by then incredible Camilla d'Errico (she is not paying me to say that either). Basically the paints are oil paints but water soluble. They don't dry NEARLY as fast as acrylics but dry MUCH faster than oils. Life has taken on a whole new meaning.
67 days to go.
