Today we went shopping, I bought my wife some bits and bobs and she waited patiently in the car. we then went grocery shopping and she sat in the car some more. Got home, carried it all into the house, put it away and ate lunch. I then found myself buying a load of stuff at the art shop, in the next few days I shall have burnt umber in acrylic again. Yippee, my running out of paint anxiety has been eased and so has my lack of canvas anxiety. Admittedly there is a load of stretched stuff in the corner, and I no feel compelled to recycle old materials, look at cardboard boxes, or the bottoms of drawers. I am free to paint to my hearts content and have helped a local business at the same time, I am happy.
TBH, these last days/weeks have been a bit of a strain. The constant battle with Mental and sometimes physical ill Health has been pretty tiring and all I want to do is collapse in a heap. All of that coupled with Mrs. not being well, just adds to it all. I think we both need a holiday, somewhere warm, with lots of sunshine and none of this stupid Covid business. There again, we may just settle right now, for a bit of sunshine and an afternoon in the garden potting seeds and preparing for the spring.
Painting wise, I am in the process of completing a big pile of work I have let built up. Once this is done, it shall be a complete sea change and time to look for new creative inspiration. I would take a photo, of the pile of work, waiting to be done, however the camera is upstairs and Mrs. is asleep so it will have to wait.
