I meant to do five minutes work on the computer, then finish the main painting stage of A PORTRAIT PLACED IN ANOTHER PAINTING and finally work in the garden for the major part of the day. Five minutes turned into five hours, doing very little of real consequence, and although I did do the painting as planned I never got into the garden at all.
I fear that this week is going to be even more disrupted than last week!
I was so late getting into my study/studio, after an extended morning in the garden and finishing off a number of other domestic jobs that I decided not paint. I spent what remained of the day working on the digital art projects I started last week.
It looked like I was going to spend the entire day working on the computers (digital art and photograph manipulation – but the small Acer started to sound a bit weary so I went into my studio and started to add the main painting layer of IMPROVISATION FROM A BEAN STALK.
I had a lot of writing to do in the morning (usual whinges) and then spent the afternoon painting more of IMPROVISATION FROM A BEAN STALK.
I had a lot of important family things to do and wasn’t able to settle into my study or studio until well after two – as it turned out mostly the former.
Out all day with my wife and sister, nothing much of a creative nature done except some Manfred Wing photography (and not very many of these).
I had to do some of the publicity for the show at the end of the month, which took all morning (as these things often do). I did writing and digital creating in the afternoon. There was a degree of unlogic in this as I had some urgent gardening jobs to do and heavy rain and gales are forecast for tomorrow!
There hasn’t been much time spent in my studio this week, hopefully I will manage more during the next one as the week after will have to be devoted to getting work ready for the show.
