Summer is moving along at a brisk pace. I am trying to spend more time painting, but the playing seems to be getting in the way.
We spent a week at the beach celebrating a family wedding, this upcoming weekend we will be celebrating our birthdays. Soon up is a weekend away with family, add some overnights with friends and hopefully some pool days with family, lunch with friends and the summer will be played away.
Yesterday I was able to seriously return to the studio and did the above small painting as a precursor and warm up to a commission I was sketching out. It, too felt like play as I used spray bottles filled with watercolor, some stencils and some new (to me) water solvable graphite.
It’s a physically small piece (approximately 6″ x 7″), but a big reminder of the fact that my work is my play, and I am grateful.
Wishing you a summer where you, too, discover the bliss that is playful work.
