So Little Time, March 22, 2010

Arlington RxR trestle

Today it’s back to school after Spring Break.  I have classes all day and a college class tonight, so I won’t even look at this until late tonight.  But I shall look at it and nudge it some more then.  I set the alarm a half-hour early, rising at 5:00 this morning, so I could give this 30 minutes of nudging.  It will no doubt come along more slowly than what I’ve grown used to, but nevertheless, I will pledge to do art everyday, even if for only small spaces of time.

Thanks for reading.

    Excellent progress. The sky is very atmospheric.

    Thank you, Linda. I’m going to try to lay in a misty forest back there. That’s what’s actually at the site. The sky does poke through quite a bit, but there are lots of winter tree limbs knifing up into it. We’ll see how it comes along. I regret deeply that I won’t even be in my studio before 10:00 tonight. I’ll either return to this, or go back to the GATX train composition (whatever the mood dictates).

    When it comes to horsepower, you *are* the freight train charging over the trestle! Wow, have you been pouring on the creativity lately. : ] The watercolors look wonderful from here, untrained but appreciative eye that I am. Glad you had a true spring break basking en plein air. Nice to see.

      Thanks, Shelley. I don’t know why I didn’t receive notification of your post, until now (March 26). It popped up in the spam (which usually happens with posts, but nevertheless I’m notified!). I opened up my blog stats to see if anyone had been looking (because I haven’t been posting!) and there you were. At any rate, you’re “on the page” now, and thanks so much for your encouragement–I’m ready to get back to painting, now that this durned school week is complete (what a wretched week, again!). I hope the music is playing for you!
