Sunday and not an especially productive day. I didn’t do any gardening except watering plants (which took an inordinately long time) and I didn’t do any work in my studio either – although I did some art work on the computers and like yesterday work on the tablets also.
As we still have to make sure the dog doesn’t chew her stitches I spent much of the day writing on my larger tablet (which is the cheapest by far of the two I use but ironically it is the only one which readily connects to my pc or mac.
I added all the symbols to another of the FRAGMENT FROM LIFE paintings (the seventh) as well starting a number of others – I then finished my weekly writing and did more tablet and computer drawing – much more of the former than the latter.
Although not as manic as last Wednesday, this was a rather strange and unproductive day. I added symbols to the eighth of the FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE paintings but did little else: partly because I had to go out a couple of times and partly because I rearranged my studio as I am increasingly inclined to the view that I spend too much time sitting down. I sit down at my easel and I also sit down in front of the computers and as I can’t do much about the latter I have resolved to try and paint standing up as much as possible. We will see how this pans out.
I was out all morning and early afternoon. From the middle of the afternoon onwards I worked on the computers: writing and painting/photoediting (mainly the former).
I carried on with the small FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE pictures with the hope of finishing the symbol adding stage on the entire set by the end of the week – however three works still had a little bit to do on them by the end of the afternoon. I may try and finish them tomorrow; if not I will hopefully finish them on Monday and then get them all coloured in and fully completed by Wednesday.
I had planned to carry on with the small paintings but my wife and I went out for a family day (barbecue etc.) so nothing much of a creative nature was done save for a little bit of work on the computer before we left the house.
