Pushing Myself

“You really are pushing yourself!” my little sister Lily said. I was working on three abstract paintings at once and in that moment disliking them all intensely. In the end, they all turned out ok.

I also made another painting, a figurative one that as usual came easily, while hanging out with John in his studio, which of course was great fun.

What not a lot of people know is that as of tomorrow I’ll be taking a little break, as a friend from grad school is visiting. I’ll still paint, of course, but not four paintings a day. Besides, I’m getting to a point where, if I do one each day, and two on quite prolific days, I’ll have the 40 I wanted to make for my show without a problem.
