Do you ever find yourself doing all the things you don’t really want to and avoiding the things you really do want to do, and not really understanding why? I think we probably all do this more often than we like to admit… and I’ve been doing it for the past three days or so.
Admittedly there was quite a lot of work to do on Monday, and a fair bit yesterday, but by then I was mostly in control and decided to spend more time today catching up on ‘My’ things. That turned out to be a few hours on the computer, an hour or two out and about looking for curtain fabric and then a frantic painting session (in artificial light) while the dinner was cooking – and then I slipped away for another hour after dinner to try and correct all the mistakes I’d made 😛
No wonder I feel frustrated and my painting is so patchy! The fact I have anything to show tonight is due to sheer determination and very forgiving paper (it’s worth getting the good stuff!) – I had to completely redo both eyes and even resorted to using opaque white for the highlights. I lost his chin though, I don’t think it can be saved…
I do love this little kitten though, so I will try again 🙂
