Things I've observed while painting today:

1. It's harder than it looks.

2. I forget that it's a bit hard.

3. I move around a lot, and walk backwards away from my painting and trip on stuff.

4. I get messy, and have to clean my hands and fingers because.....

5. I use my fingers to paint sometimes.

6. A beer helps me relax and get in the groove.

7. I hate the minutia of details.

8. It's good to not have distractions.

9. It's great to be back in my studio.

1. My studio co-exists with Erin's/the guest bedroom.

2. Only good beer.

3. A good Johnny Cash cd. " I fell in to a burning ring of fire, I went down, down, down and the flames went higher. And it burns burns burns...."

I’m quitting my job right now to become an artist. Right now! Here I go …

Okay, maybe I’m really just all about the beer.

Finger painting...now there's something I haven't done in a long time. It sounds therapeutic. Maybe I can finger paint with Becca when she's old enough. :)

You and Becca will love it. I would suggest starting with something a little more water-soluable than oil paints, though.
