I currently have 4 pieces worked out, color-studied, transferred onto canvases, and ready to move over to my easel. I'm normally a "one piece at a time" kind of gal, but painting commences on several of these today. I want 3 done by the end of the month. I have no idea if this is possible.
I'm back on my "stay up all night working and sleep for a few hours in the afternoon" schedule in a pretty hardcore sort of way... I have tried to break this cycle so many times, but I always seem to work my way back around the clock to this nocturnal life. I'm trying to just officially embrace it, as it's obviously how I work best. Also, I've been watching The History Channel's show "Ancient Aliens" on Netflix while I've been up by myself all night working - some of the ideas they talk about are actually interesting and fun to think about, while others are just historical or biblical references followed by a "...but what if aliens were involved?" It can get silly. Regardless though, my 4 AM google searches are becoming increasingly more and more bizarre.
I have exactly one more fun and mountainy thing for the summer left on my schedule and then after that I will scarcely be leaving my studio until November, so expect more randomishblibberblabber posts from me. And, I apologize in advance if you wake up one morning to a post from me discussing cattle mutilations, or crystal skulls, or the fact that the moon is actually a hollow vessel housing an extraterrestrial spacecraft. I won't be getting out much.
