Contemplation

Contemplation – 2.5″ x 3.5″ ACEO

Hmmm…much to contemplate these days. I’m not sleeping well, thinking too much…too internal. I feel like walking, running, writing, reading, but not painting. Is that a normal artist thing? Am I just avoiding work? LOL! I’m having a hard time focusing on painting, but, I’m still able to churn out these little babies because they only take an hour. That’s about as long as I can focus on one thing, and even then, I’m finding myself getting up twenty times, to look in the fridge, the cupboard, the drawers, only to go sit back down at the easel, empty-handed, because I’m not really looking for food. It would probably only take half-an-hour if I didn’t get up so often:)
I did finish the 18 x 24 for Inside Barkerville…I think…maybe. There’s still something bothering me about it, but I’m not sure what it is yet.
Anyways, I love the look in this cat’s eye, and I also love the way I did the red background. It really brings it to life…I think it does anyways. (Thanks a bunch to the copyright free WetCanvas photo library for the reference photo!)

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
