. . . enjoyed doing nothing




That's what it feels like. I have another whole day and a half to enjoy myself before I have to start thinking again about CD interest and where to put it and making sure I don't screw something up inadvertently.


It also feels like my creativity has split. I'm soldiering on through it by painting small pieces, monoprinting even smaller pieces, and sometimes completely ruining good pieces by going way too far.


This piece is going to my friend at work, Jan, who has no trouble whatsoever asking for something. I like that in a person. Just tell me what you want; I will either say yes or no. No problem. It's a companion piece to another one I gave her last week. It's a unofficial monoprint, 4 x 6" . I wish I hadn't put the circles on it now. I went too far.

I rather like those circles. For me, it creates nice depth. Doing nothing IS doing something. Nothing is a good thing to do now and then.

I like the circles..... and I'm trying to restrain myself from asking for a painting or two ;-)

Mary--I don't think so! I like the circles in it. But then, I have a few of your paintings and some of them have circles. Circles are appealing to me lately. I like the fact that you don't mind if people ask you for something. Sometimes it is hard to muster the "no" response though. It sounds like you don't mind either way. I have been trying to learn to say "no" more. It is a hard one.

I would feel honoured if someone asked me for a painting. I think art should be shared.

I also like the circles. I like the concept of the circle, no beginning and no end. This piece really works for me.
