I do know that I have a deadline coming up in just a little over a week and did I manage to get more done this week?? That would be a big fat no. Life keeps on intruding dragging me here and there. I don’t seem to have the discipline to yell, “Stop – I have to work on my fall piece!” No. . . . I just keep letting anything and everything distract me.

So I really am going to have to buckle down this weekend.
But what have I gotten done so far? I did manage to start working on the barn and working out the value problems. I’ve already done the side wall over since the one I did this weekend was way too light. I do like the gradation in value I’m getting with the reds – adding a bit of orange in there so it doesn’t get too matchy-matchy. I’m having a bit of problems with placement so I might end up making a quick placement pattern – which I normally hate to do since I don’t like to stick so strictly to the initial design but now its getting hard to get everything lined up right.
So I think its time to get a good book going on my mp3 player and see if I can focus in my studio. The one I'm listening to right now is The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King. I've read/listen to it several times and still never get sick of it. Its the story of Sherlock Holmes apprentice (and later wife) Mary Russell. Hopefully by Monday's post, I'll have more to show for myself!
So what have you been doing creatively??????
