i paint i write

Live boldly, laugh and make art

Tonight, I will paint

It is 5:30 in the evening.  There are dishes all over the kitchen counter. The litter box is full. The sewing machine is on the dining room table. There are boxes on the floor for items we are selling on ebay. The dog wants to go for a walk.

I bought three boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios and Pillsbury Flaky layers Buttermilk Biscuits for my husband and children for supper. I will eat a can of sardines.

Tonight, I will paint.

No more talking about painting. No more reading books about painting. No more thinking about painting.

It was nice talking to you.

See you tomorrow.

    I am so glad you are painting. I am in great need of being creative and yet it is hard to actually sit down and do it.
    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

      Thank you Robin. I had to force myself to ignore the mess of life and create. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
