“Everything isn’t a joke, but it’s all pretty funny.”

Still not finished with this one, but still working on it. I paint late at night at least once a week when I can arrange my schedule with an opportunity to sleep in the next morning. I love being in my own little corner of the universe, painting away content on focusing on my own thing and knowing that my family is all asleep upstairs. I usually begin about 10pm and try to wrap up by about 2am knowing that it will be another hour before I’m in bed after the clean up of my brushes and just settling in and maybe reading a book for a few minutes. Last night I started about quarter to 10 – a little early. I recall looking at the clock at 2 and thinking I should finish up and then I looked up again and it was almost 4am. I’m not sure where that time went, but it was already gone. So it was a very late night and a short day today as a result. But Tuesday is a holiday and I have fun things planned for tomorrow night. It’s all good.

  1. Thanks AnnMarie! I am continually impressed at how you manage to fit in your artwork into what I’m sure is a busy life. I love the idea of being able to just create something out of nothing in a break from work the way you do, but I just can’t pull it off. I even carry a small sketchbook hoping that inspiration will strike and I will pull it out and do something interesting. So far those episodes have been few and far between – and nothing to brag about… I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with next. Have a great week!
