Tidbites

P1060056-2316x1737

You’ve heard of sound bites, right. Tidbits of sound. Well, I’m into painting bites. Tidbits of time to paint. It’s working though, doing some good work in the very tight time limitations I have now. Concentrated time; concentrating mind. When I go into my studio I may think I will work on one thing, but end up doing something entirely different. A different idea, color, energy pulls me. Having so little time and so much desire to paint, I just let it happen. It is very fascinating,┬áthe not planning part. And seems to be rewarding. But I always have to wait until the next day to be sure. See what I did the day before. Somehow things, i.e., paintings, magically┬áchange overnight. Strange how that happens!

Having a puppy puts a lot of demands on my time. He’s an easy pup, as puppies go. But I have had a hard time getting him used to spending time alone in his crate. Although I enjoy my time with him, I need time to work and do things other than play with him. He’s learning, slowly. I hope.

I’m realizing as well how important solitude is to me and to creativity in general. I just have to teach Romeo how important it is.

 

About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
