The Pain sets in

Funny...I wonder if all artists go through this. When I don't paint for a while, (five days is long enough) I begin to feel restless and agitated. Any longer than five days and I get positively angry and resentment starts to seep through my thoughts.

Whenever I get a chance to focus on painting...I find that I have to detox my emotions before I begin. Right now, I know I am angry because those silly little thoughts keep popping into my head. I yearn to just leave the house with my materials and sit in the Savannah. All the trees are different colours, the poui the flambouyant, the lilac trees........I will have to wait for next year to get those colours again.

I want to paint, but the duties keep me away......
