Time's Up!

The Underside (c)2011 Dora Sislian Themelis
9x12 Watercolor on Arches paper
A busy weekend doesn't always afford the chance to paint. You would think that having two days free from other duties around here I'd have time to myself. It just isn't the case. Except for 20 minutes that I was able to wrest free for me!

Yes, twenty glorious minutes. Sad isn't it? Sad that I can only find twenty minutes to myself. The thing is not to dwell on the time, but the activity. So I had twenty minutes, big deal! I used it to my advantage. When you set your mind to something things happen. Don't you find it to be so?

Seeing that I was in between errands and visiting this Saturday, and all alone for once, I grabbed that time to paint. Hey, I'm on the clock here with that commitment to paint 100 paintings! By the time I was finished with this my people here started to arrive, Son#2 first, then The Mr.

Bzzzzzzz. Time's up!


  1. Dear Dora,
    Lovely work and your writing always makes me happy. Please keep up.
    Cheers, Sadami

  2. Beautiful!
    So how far have you got in the 100 paintings - are you on schedule?

  3. Sadami, I'm glad you liked my post, and my painting!

  4. Pat, this is #11. I've been painting one and a half a week and at this rate I'm not going to have 100 in a year. But I plod along anyway hoping the momentum will build as I go. Hoping..LOL
