Chihuahua in progress...

"Spot the Chihuahua"

7"x5" acrylic on canvas

It was cloudy off and on today here in Baker, which didn't really put me in the mood to paint. I did though, as you can see. This is a new commission that is due by Tuesday the 12th. I'm under the gun a little even if the weather isn't that conducive to painting.

I think too, that when I have several pieces going at the same time, I'm torn between which I want to work on. There isn't a painting that's in progress in the studio right now that I'd rather be working on. I want to work on all of them, and that does seem to cause a little creative block. There are four canvases that have something that's partly created on it. I could say five, because there is one from several months ago, that is only several hours, if that, from being completed.

I think the other problem is the audiobook I'm listening to. It's all short stories and most of them have unhappy endings. I actually think I'll just quit listening to it and start a new one.

Maybe tomorrow will find me with a finished painting.
