Notes From My Town Studio
I have been struggling along with the acrylics for a number of days but I'm not having much success in getting back up to my former skill set with them. I have put them in a box here in the town studio for a bit and have gone back to my oils for some work.
I know some painters who seem to switch back and forth with two mediums regularly and successfully, but I don't do that very well. I have to focus hard on one medium at a time for extended periods. I am ADD, so I have to really discipline myself and focus on one thing at a time.
This year has been chaotic, with the studio move, lots of travel, all distracting. I am looking forward to my summer schedule where I am in my painting studio Monday-Thursday and here at the town studio on Friday and Saturday. More time to lounge around with Henry and wear old shorts and flip flops. More time to work on my champion trees paintings and work a little in the yard and tend to my herb garden. I'll be working in the Fair Oaks Studio through the hot months on Sunday, waiting for cool weather to go out in the fields.
Life is good for an artist!
