I am currently up in Wisconsin at my cottage working on a project for an upcoming photoshoot. Yes I forgot to post something about Father’s Day and painting is not as high on the priority list right now. I feel crazy. This time in WI is not of rest and relaxation which is normally what this setting entails. I am working around the clock to finish something that is just easier to work on on our massive dining room table (without a kitty at my feet). From here I head to a florist’s to work on a seating chart, and then home to complete a couple other projects before heading out of town again for my sister’s bachelorette party in Michigan. It feels like a whirlwind that I am standing still in the middle of. Time and projects, but my brain has a moment to just think as I slowly progress on my work.
It made me think about how I work and the confidence you have to have going into and starting a project made by one’s hand.
You have to look ahead, but not too much and know that where you touch down is a good place to start, even if you have to adjust things along the way. As time progresses, you begin to trust yourself a bit more and become familiar with your surroundings…and you no longer have to fear.
I got all this while painting some words…..and without drugs. Wow…..maybe I should do drugs instead.
