again and again..

Again it is cloudy and raining... a gentle steady downpour with much colder temperatures than previously. It is a good day to delve into looming tasks that seem somewhat tedious, yet necessary.

Especially tedious when you are repeating them due to your own errors! Alas, the pains of being human, we get to learn from our mistakes.

It is completely quiet in the house. Normally, there are strains of incredible music wafting through every room, but not today... no, today, it is time for silence with only the rhythms of the rain and wind to keep me company, as I finish my chores.

I have spent so much time lately doing non-creative work that my soul is desperately craving a healthy dose of painting, collage, and assemblage. I have tried lingering in my studio during the evening hours over the last several days hoping a rush of creative juices would come pouring out... but by the end of the day, my energies are spent, exhausted, and all I can think to do is stare off into space.

I have set aside the entire Saturday to spend at my worktables, hopefully creating with reckless abandon... I am looking forward to turning the music back on, and getting lost in the beauty of making art, again.

Such a beautiful post. I love this painting. The colors... the movement... it's really cool.

I hope you're having a good weekend.
