Hello! For the past two days we have had snow days in our state. I'm pretty sure I'm back to work tomorrow, but it has been pretty nice. What wasn't nice was what came to visit this afternoon- a whole big whopping load of guilt. I felt suddenly horribly guilty because I hadn't spent the last two days in my studio painting. The truth of the matter is I have been forcing myself into the studio lately. It has felt more drudgery than joy, I don't know if this is the winter blues or just a rough patch in my painting life, but I was very frustrated with myself. I guess my question is- does this happen to you? And if so, what do you do to shake yourself out? It really was a very nice two days, with lots of reading and resting. I just feel I wasted time I could have spent painting. Either way, this is what I've been working on when I do get in here. I also have a picture of my in-laws dog next to the photograph that I worked from. Hope you are all staying safe and warm this Wednesday!
