I spent some time in my studio yesterday. I really would like to get to the point where I am painting a little everyday but it feels like my life still has too many distractions. I will set aside time in my studio and that will be the time someone decides they need me for whatever reason. The days I don't have studio time planned, no one will call for days. I find that very weird.
I felt out of sorts while painting yesterday and didn't like the direction that the painting was going but felt like I needed to follow it through. When I got up this morning and looked with fresh eyes, she had started to kinda grow on me. I still can't figure out what to do with the mouth. Sometimes just starring at a painting for days will give insight. I think I will set her aside and see what comes to me. I know it is not right yet because I have an unsettled feeling about it. When it is finished I will feel it in my gut.
