On Sunday I had every intention of spending the day in the studio working on a project for an art exchange I am in with some online friends. I was honored to be invited but with that comes the apprehensiveness of "my stuffs not that good" "what did I get myself into?" "someone really wants something I created?" "what if I can't meet the deadline?" etc.... And now with two art classes going even more procrastinating. But on the other hand, I excited about participating and have already received two wonderful pieces (I'll post soon). But, back to Sunday. Well we all know that I opted for the beach with the little ones and off I went!
Tuesday then was going to be my studio day! Yes, finally a day to myself! But Rudy surprised me that he was off till Friday this week. That's okay, I'll run errands with him in the morning and work in the studio in the afternoon. I was prepared, had gotten my supplies together the night before, stopped for what I need from the grocery store....good to go.
But as I walked in the house the phone rang and my niece Allison asked if I wouldn't mind watching the baby because Aidan was running a high fever and she was running to the doctor's with him. Of course I could help her out! So, no studio afternoon as I had planned. But the baby is a joy and I loved getting to spend time with him. He soon dozed off to sleep and I put him up on the big ottoman, grabbed my moleskine wc sketchbook and went to work. Well, he woke up crying but by then I had just about finished the little sketch.
So maybe tomorrow I can get to my project?
