.... puddles this morning .... so i'm waiting ... then i'll do my best ....


the painting in yesterday's post appeared in a newsletter today ..... the newsletter is for the store re-inspiration .... fresh, new things are fun and exciting ... i've had three friends email me this morning that they saw my art in the newsletter ... hooray ...

here's another painting that i did at the beginning of this week and that is now at the re-inspiration store ....
it is a very appropriate sentiment for me today ... i was supposed to have an 8.30 tennis match with my favorite tennis partner ... but we are at the moment waiting for the puddles to dry in the hopes we can get the match in .... we know the women that we are playing and are expecting to get not just beaten, but smashed .... or i am ... maybe m has a more optimistic outlook than i do .... it's our first match of the season ... and i think there is a MOST excellent chance that we are going to go 0 and 5 ... unless we got better while i wasn't looking ....but ..... it's ok ... we'll just do our best .... and hopefully get better through the thrashings .... that's our plan anyway ..... and at least we get to play tennis ...

so, just do your best ... what is it you are working on these days where your attitude is more important than your performance?



uh oh... editor's edit ... which really means an e.beck.update .... i need my next painting to be about optimism ..... my cute partner and i won our tennis match ... so i did do my best ... but optimism wasn't front and center ... i pessimistically though we had no way to win ... i was way wrong ... i'm usually SO optimistic .... not sure what happened ... but at least we won ....

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm off to see the dermatologist and I'll "do my best" not to be impatient if I have to wait and not to squeel if she has to biopsy anything - which often happens but so far so good.
