Now that the dust has settled from the renovations, I'm ready to begin painting again. I have four new paintings set up and I'm trying to complete four more. They seem to accompany me where ever I go. I make mind edits, expand ideas and consider new options. I call it painting in my head. I'm sure every artist has this aspect of their practice. All of our experiences get filtered through our creative brains. It's called experience.

It's Monday. The only thing I have to offer today are dusty thoughts about painting. This past week has been a busy one for me. I totally renovated my home office, had my computer overhauled at the same time and worked . My part time job sometimes expands to a little more than part time but then ebbs to less than part time. The fact that I work as a decorator in a home decorating centre keeps my mind on colour and design even when I'm away from painting. After five years of being fancy free, I wanted to have contact with the public again. I an a better person when I have a schedule.
