I awoke this morning all discombobulated and out of sorts. I felt scattered and frustrated. The last thing I wanted was to have that energy in my painting so I avoided my art studio. A good friend though recommended I paint anyway commenting that interesting paintings can come from what I was feeling. Trusting her advice, I decided to go ahead and work on the painting I started yesterday. Like my other paintings, I will sit with this before considering it done but she was right. Painting was very calming and healing. I am so glad that I listened to her.
