Daffodils in Spring Harmony
I find myself in a situation where I am on a high from painting this afternoon in my studio. I know I need to pack my brushes away now until I film my new DVD this week as I need to prepare for the drive tomorrow. But putting them down is so hard!
I have a solo exhibition and as I forwarded press release images yesterday afternoon to the gallery I became so excited at my new collection that I couldn't wait to start painting today.
To leave to film this week is obviousy necessary because there won't be a new DVD if I don't! But I so wish I could be in two places at once at times. I want to be here using all this motivated enthusiasm in my new watercolours.
However I will channel the energy and share it in my new film along with the wonderful discoveries I have found in new techniques whilst writing my new book,"Atmospheric Watercolours" which will be out later this year. It probably is a good thing Town House Films contacted me last week to discuss the filming or I could have become totally side tracked with my exhibition work instead!
I am meeting so many new artists who wish to turn professional. My advise to each of them is to realise this does become a full time job, taking every minute and absorbing your attention not just for one week ahead,but months and in my case even years as I try to fit so much in.
But what can I say?
I love being this busy!
