It's not easy being a nice person like me. How do I get trapped into the corner and allow Mr. Resistance to walk all over me? Am I a doormat? Do I look like I have the word "Idiot" tattooed across my forehead?
Um, no, but it happens every now and then that a little thing can derail a nice flow of creative energy, like a late day with too many things on the list to check off. Derail is a nice word. Trample my direction is another way of saying my art making hit the skids.
Okay. I'm over that now. Mr. Resistance is no longer welcome and it's time to get back to work!

9x12 Watercolor, Arches cold press paper
I cropped another photograph to get the composition I felt comfortable with and I went at it with a quick pencil line, then right to the paint. Again, less than an hour's worth of work and this was finished. It's not easy work either. There was plenty of thought behind this painting. Some how I'm able to think where I want to go and get to it quicker than I have in the past.
Finished projects happen far more often these days.
