Staying Motivated on a Sunny Day

    March 24, 2010

    After the long cold winter we've had here in NY it is hard to resist going out into the spring sunshine and soaking it up.  To me right now it is more important than ever to keep painting my silk scarves - I have several opportunities coming up where I can display my scarves before Mother's Day and Graduation and replenish my supply in a local gallery.  So designs and colors are whirling around my head each night and I paint at every opportunity.  It seems I am motivated by pressure - the pressure of a deadline.  Why didn't I prepare during the cold dreary days of winter you may think.....w e l l......   So I open the shades and let the sun shine in and crank up the music and with paintbrush in hand instead of sneakers on feet I enjoy the day.  I stay focused and actually love it.
