Fill In The Blanks

I picked up my twelve custom made canvases yesterday and whilst I was at my suppliers, ordered a couple of larger ones.

It is always as daunting as it is exciting when I get new canvas to paint and create on. After all these years I am still somewhat intimidated by the blank surface - pristine and white - daring me to make a mark... MY mark.

My head has been spinning a little in the studio today. I am jumping from one piece to another, whilst contemplating a brand new one. I feel a great lack of discipline today but also a resurgence of inspiration and motivation - so it's not all bad.

Well, I have to say, Simone, it is exciting to think of you having new canvases to paint.

It seems odd to think of you being intimidated to make your mark on a new canvas...I always think of you dancing around your studio with so much to share! :)

Lack of discipline is often a good thing, I have found, as the freedom brings out some of the most creative work. It all sounds VERY GOOD and EXCITING to me!

I can't wait to see the results of your studio time!
