So I had a bit of a panic attack last week.  I thought “what if I run out of ideas of things to paint!?!” Which is a real concern when one decides to paint 100 little paintings.  I don’t want to do the same thing in different ways, but then I do want to do a bit of work in a series (which is doing the same thing in different ways).  🙂  So I am painting and fussing about this not having enough ideas.  Finally I decide to sit down (which I am not doing much of these days) and start to write down the ideas I have percolating away.  Shake my head…I don’t think I will run out of ideas.   The problem may be is that I have too many ideas.

“Stake Out”, 5×7, Acrylic

This week I have painted my very first raven.  I don’t know why I have never painted one before…but there you go, now I have.  I have a load of great photos from living on the 4th floor this past year.  I need to get more photos to work from though.  I think this could turn into a little series.

My painting time has become a lot less with teaching this week. I taught session 2 of Drawing 1 tonight, tomorrow I teach Acrylic 1 Session 1, Thursday and Saturday I teach session 3 and the last session 4 of  Watercolour 1, and Friday I teach at the school!  Life is hopping and I will be tired on Sunday!  🙂 The next few weeks will be very busy and then I will only be painting.
