When I removed the garden painting from the block it felt great. In the book Walking in This World, by Julia Cameron, I read in one of the chapters to 'Finish something'!
How does it feel to finish something? I felt relief. The act of closing the book on a work is very satisfying. So satisfying that I get a rush of inspiration. Maybe I felt that way because I was happy to be done with a piece I wasn't thrilled with? Whatever the reason, I became excited about the possibilities.
No sooner had I freed the painting from the watercolor block, I looked over the latest photos I've taken and chose one to sketch onto the brand spanking new paper.
I'll get back to you on it.
