Great day for me today though it won't sound like it. Remember, "completion" is my word for the year (thank you again, SiL A, for this great idea!) so here's why today was that kind of day.
Years ago, I painted a series of Southwest paintings in oil. Eventually we decided to keep them unframed, and in that way, save a bit of money. That meant that I would have to paint all sides of each painting. It took a while because I dragged my feet on doing that painting; one doesn't get the kick of creating while doing that kind of work. I would have to recreate the colors used near the edges in order to make the edge look like a continuation of the painting itself. It's a chore that eats up "real" painting time.
D has been asking me time and again to get that work done. Today I counted the sides left to paint on those three paintings.
Four sides. That's all. "Well, darn," I thought. "I can get that done!"
And I did!
Then I allowed myself to work on the new watercolor painting (another winter scene) which is coming along nicely. It's only the second day, but I'm liking it.
