365, Day 146: Trusting the Process

365, Day 146

I am on fall break. Which means, of course, that I have even more stuff that needs doing than usual. The day I painted this piece was one of those days where I didn’t want to paint, didn’t feel like painting, and hated what I ended up with. It was the first day of an academic conference at a “big” local university, a regional conference, and I was feeling out of my element. Nervous. Panicked. And still tweaking my presentation late into the night (and as it turned out, late into the next night….).

This was just a day to get paint on paper. I really have no idea what it is or what it means, I just remember being drawn to this particular shade of green which is one I don’t use much.

Some days are like this, folks. You just get paint on the paper and try to trust the process.
