Unsettled Weather

I feel very unsettled in my painting at the moment. Unfocused.

Often I approach a new blank canvas, make a few marks, and I'm off and running, even if I go in with no plan at all.

With this piece, having no plan took me no where for way too long! But I couldn't rustle up the self-discipline to make a plan.

In the end, I followed curiosity. Listened to the faintest of whispers. Experimented. Explored.

    1. Thanks, Sheila.

      Have you been able to paint at all since your move? Or are you going to wait for the 30-in-30 and then dive into complete immersion?
