Laugh - Day 22 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"Laugh" - 18" x 24" acrylic on paper
I was laughing when I started this piece, thinking of how excited I had been to start the challenge and confident I was that I'd be able to make a group of paintings at one time and be "ahead" of the deadlines.  I even set up my painting area in my glass studio where I have 10x more room to paint and could easily work on 5-6 or more pieces at one time.

But NOooooooo.....

I'm painting in one space in one little area with all my paints and supplies surrounding the paper, and doing each piece one at a time.

So much for staying ahead and making all of these organization plans.

But - I haven't fallen behind and that's huge.  So I'm cutting my Self a little slack and just laughing about my expectations that fell awry.

Such is life - apparently this is how I roll and try as I might to change it and be like my uber organized friends and colleagues, it's just the way I am.


  1. Your working in a "cozy" spot. Conducive to heartfelt soul connection and creation :)The orange in this is a laugh in itself ;) Makes me think of orange soda in a childhood summer, orange cream pops, and those mega huge bomb pops with orange and raspberry mixed. The color is pure joy!

  2. Your comment about the orange soda and cream pops are making me drool, Sheila!! Weren't those the best??
