I painted this last Thursday when I realized I had a free day for the first time in a long time and could paint if I wanted to…if I skipped one of my favorite yoga classes and a much needed mani pedi. I went to Whole Foods to pick out some flowers and had to return them when I arrived home to find them falling apart. But they made it right. And I got going. I hadn’t painted this large in a long, long time and I found myself wanting to use my brushes which I also have not done in a very long time. It all came back to me…only better after my time away. I had found a scarf at Whole Foods a couple weeks ago (can you tell I live there?) that bespoke all things autumn to me….and the colors of the season are inspiring me. Now if I could just find another free day. Last night my students asked what I do besides teach that one night a week. It’s hard to explain…but I find that there are many things that take up my time. Do you know what I mean?
