I have had such a frustrating time lately with the paintings. I am very happy with every painting I have produced this last month but they have come so slowly and taken every bit of juice I have. A couple months ago it was all pouring out so easily and I thought well now I have got it. It will never be hard again. Ooops - not quite.
Although I am not anywhere near planning this long of a hiatus - I do remember seeing in a documentary on John Lennon - when asked why he hung up his guitar for a couple years, he said, "sometimes you have to breathe in"
Of course then he wrote an album in a week after that- I can only hope.
I think I need to breathe in. I have worked so hard on making a go of making a living as an artist that I have breathed out too much. So I am taking a little - teeny - tiny break. Just a few days. I put this painting up tonight for 7 days so I will still have something floating out there this Sunday. I will be back refreshed Monday Morning.
Hope you all enjoy Lady Madonna- I think she is just great and came from deep within.
