Sleeping in a Floaty-Soft-Place



Here's what I'm thinking.
All of my literary and artistic heroes were early risers and know for working hard all day. I've found that I don't work like that. All my best painting is late at night, I can't stand painting in the "wee morning hours".
Today I tried to imitate Hemingway's vigorous work routine by painting this morning.
It was torture!! I just can't focus, I need to be alone when I paint. Mornings are filled with people running out for work, or hanging out half the day, or lawn guys firing up leaf blowers. Afternoons here are filed with the "lovely" voices of children shrieking in what I can only guess is an epic game of tag. By dinner time my family is back, and it's not until everyone has gone to bed that I feel able to paint, and paint I do.
I guess what I'm saying is that every creative person has their own schedule, a "magic" time of the day. My time is from 9-11 at night roughly. Anyways, this is what I've accomplished tonight.


Not much, but I'll paint more after uploading this. My biggest fear is to lose track of time and forget to post everyday! Thank God it hasn't happened yet! ^_^
Stay Artsy & DFTBA
