there is an island
of an hour or two,
an extra day in the day.
—Michael Cadnum, Breaking the Fall
Yes! Reveled in an extra day in the day early yesterday afternoon!
Went to my studio barefoot, opened the window wide to the delicious late summer air, picked up a brush, mixed a color, painted from a place of peace and vacation within me.
The struggles I'd been having with ideas about how I might paint Cabin C fell away. Took playful liberties with color, played with more brushes than usual, and dipped into the playground of gesture vs photographic realism.
Now I'm going to curl up on my bunk in Cabin C for siesta.
