I haven't been able to paint for months. My lower back had a complete meltdown and I was crippled with pain so bad I couldn't sit, bend or even walk. Things were bad folks, very bad. But today I went into the studio, frustrated at my ever increasing insomnia and just said **%$#^ it! If I can't sleep, I'll paint! And wallah, I started this painting at 9:30 am this morning and finished it around 12:30 pm with needed touch ups and varnishing. Yeah, I know, pretty damned good. I am most pleased.
So in spite of pain and insomnia I actually was able to paint and because I have been doing this for most of my life I have gotten to a skill level that when things work, they really work. I am most grateful. In fact, very, very grateful. I hope this is a great sign of great things to come this year. God knows, it would be most welcome.
Happy New Year all you art lovers out there! Happy New Year, indeed.
