I've begun to struggle a bit with my personal deadlines. I upload 3 videos a week at specific times and today's was a bit late because I insisted on finishing two paintings last week for some reason. And this one was tricky to boot. Watercolour ground on a black-primed canvas! I was saying that my youtube channel is quickly turning into a "Will It Watercolour?" channel.
I was feeling a little last-minute second guessing regarding the number of paintings I have ready for the upcoming artshow. I had about as much artwork as I did the first go around, but the first go around still seemed slightly sparse to me, so I added a couple more just now. When your artwork is so small, for storage and shipping reasons mostly, it's harder to fill up a wall or two.
In other household news, I guess I'm sleepy these days. We're not doing much that is fun (summer exploration has come to an end, sadly!), but the caterpillar is still munching on leaves and pooping. The cats are forcing themselves to get along so that they can share body heat on the couch. The calamondin has burst forth with new leaves this week. It usually gets confused when I bring it in for the summer. Last year, it flowered like crazy and filled the apartment with so much pretty floral scent that we could hardly breathe. This is fun, too.
