mona's heartstrings ....


oh! .... do you see the mysterious haze of mona lisa in the background? i was working on image transfers .....was going for subtle .... and maybe got TOO subtle ... ha .... i'm not sure anyone will see mona if i don't announce her presence! 

i finished two collages on friday and two on saturday ..... and none on sunday .... not bad, though, considering i don't generally paint over the weekends ...... though, that makes me think to tell you, i did paint a bit this morning ... at my LAST journaling class ... i started it in august ... and now we're done ... and i have a pretty groovy filled in journal to show for it ..... 

so, here's my interesting thing .... i am thinking about art every single minute of every single day ... i am going to sleep thinking about art and waking up, still thinking about art .... my show is ten days away and it is ALL i think about .. what's up with that? i'm generally not a worrier, but i'm thinking that's what  this is ... i'm worrying ... or obsessing about the show .... i have been painting like a mad woman .... what if my NEXT piece is the best one .... i better get it done and out of me so that it can hang in the show!  ... i think i have far more pieces that i actually need ... yet, i keep going! i'm pretty sure that once the show is done, i'll just need a nap ..... whew ... makes me a little tired even thinking about all the things i'm thinking .... 

what are you thinking about?

I still do not see Mona .. I'm visually challenged, apparently.

I have been thinking about my lost camera ($%^&!) and blogging ... oh and a deposition /affadavit hanging over my head. Procrastination with a capital P.

Tomorrow is THE day.

Ha e I was in your boat this past week...
or at least a very similar boat - I had the big event at the store early in the week - obsessed over that for 2 days - it was great. Then began obsessing over the confirmation party that would be at my house. I was thinking about it at 2am, 3:33am and 5:15am on saturday night -- ugh - I do not worry usually either -- everything was great and now I am sleeping well! -- I saw mona when you said it

....I'm thinking about a job change so I can have more time to play, both with my children and with my art! Interview tomorrow, 11:30am, send good vibes my way!

I can see her - I think that is very cool!

I'm so excited for you and your show - I'm sure everything will be just fine! =)

I,too, have been thinking about painting - alot. I am sketching images and have a few canvases ready...but for some wierd reason, I hesitate to start. Hmmm....

Good luck with your show!!
