it looks really good to me so dont make excuses no need. by the way i invited all my older art friends to like your FB so far the results have been astonishing every ones excepted so you know have about 20 more followers
you are my sweet little fluffy teddy bro, and i love you Paul Baswell, you are a wonderful person and you make me smile (even when you shoot me on the head ) i didnt count the 20 followers my dear but i couldnt help counting the 500 new ones in less than 2 months from the start of this year, fame is good (if it matters to you) money is good (if it matters to you) good friends worth their weight in gold because i have very very few of them so i put them on a pedestal and worship them. I know you are on the other side of the planet but this is what i would want to do nevertheless. Make us 2 nice hot cups of tea, grab 2 chairs and go sit right across your chronograph and take deep breaths next to white spirits and oil paints and turpentine mediums. A feast for all my senses, especially for my eyes and my nostrils, heaven on earth. i have just woke up (i know i have been lazy today) and theres a huge amount of work i need to finish, but i ll make a coffee first to force my brain start functioning. And before i start that you get a squeezy cuddle.
your are cute iv not been getting much done lately i just can't seem to focus i have not painted in months this is the longest i ever went 2 months now but im sure i will get back to it again i have some dead lines for in the fall but im not worried
you cant force this, you know it. It will come back to you, relax and enjoy your little break. Frankly i cant relate, for the last 2 years i am working non stop. But the days i am very active active in kitchen cooking (breads, pies, pastries) i dont make the time to grab my pencils/brushes...but its just one day or two, after that i am back to my artistic addiction.
I would strongly suggest you make yourself happy anyway you can and if tactile art is the deal atm then go for it my dear. I know for sure (because this is how it works for me as well) that your artistic urges will rise and shine so seriously i am not worried about you, as long as your hands are busy and your heart is content, all is good. Cuddle?
