Flying Girl is Filled with Light and Air, or Because Joy Is

This concept of just painting to paint is weird to me. Well, not weird, but not my normal way of doing things, so it might be a while before it comes naturally. I mean, I can paint what I see without making it mean something, just enjoying the way the paint goes on the paper or how colors fit against each other or shapes that echo others... but I don't know, maybe I'm just out of practice. Maybe I've become a different kind of artist.

Anyway, I said I was just going to paint and have fun, and I thought, what's more fun than polka dots? I wasn't even going to paint last night, I was so tired, but after a couple of hours of laying on the couch watching tv, I took my paints out anyway.

That's a good thing. I finished it this morning and afternoon.

The other thing I wanted to say is...

Woo hoo! Double digits!

Woo Hoo indeed...maybe I can catch up every 10! Yikes girl, can not believe you are doing this. However in the amount of time I obsess...I mean play with my camera I could be doing a daily painting. Maybe when kindergarten is done I can at least try a to do something consistant daily for the summer.

Keep up the good work!

"because joy is"--I love that . . .hey, has FG always been in your banner, or was she added later? I never noticed her until Amanda pointed her out the other day . . .I thought your banner was just a forest of trees.
