Madness, Mayhem and Merriness

It's been such an insanely busy month, with demanding renovations, haphazard redecorating, massive housecleaning, messy furniture refinishing, delightful family visits, lovely holiday barbecues and so forth that I have been left with very little time to draw or paint. Perhaps that's no excuse, but I have not yet perfected the skill of carving time out for myself when there are other pressing demands. I am still having trouble thinking of this as REAL and WORK, which must be a priority, and not PLAY, which is not allowed except when everything else is done. I let myself be pulled away too easily. However, all of these events have actually been great fun, if a bit stressful, and I filled with inspiration.

In spite of the recent schedule, I won't leave you empty-handed (or empty-sighted). This is a watercolor I did a few years back and have loved ever since. I keep it on the wall to cheer me up. I can almost feel a warm summer breeze, smell the grass and hear kids playing when I look at it.
