Can't I get a break and just paint? I did start another painting though, and even had a second session. Working the next watercolor work on large paper, with a large brush, is having a calming effect.
And if you want to have a good laugh, guess where my inspiration to get down to work came from? It didn't come from the obvious source: reading The War of Art.

To be perfectly honest, it came from watching my 2 year old granddaughter paint. That kid is funny. She demands the "colors" and I have to oblige. I've shown her how to dip her brush in water, then on the watercolor cake I had from years ago, then to the paper. She's a pro now, and paints with such abandon, it's infectious. I love it!
When the motivation is there, and the brain works it's a good thing, as long as it doesn't blow up, like computers.
