First day back in the studio and I'm giving up baking. The whipped cream on these cupcakes is why I left this painting alone no doubt. It was driving me crazy. It is driving me crazy. It wasn't till the last minute before wine-time that I discovered how to gain control over the matter. So I'll go at them again today. --I know I was going to finish Summer Woods, but this really was the painting that was stuck in my craw. So get it done I say and move on.
Sadami of Sadami's Graffiti, gave me great advice yesterday: blog once a week on Mondays, as she does. I was so hung up with not living up to my original commitment of a blog a day and the risk of that with regards to keeping up my drawing, once a week never occurred to me. How blinded by stress is that? As soon as I read her comment, my shoulders felt lighter. So be it. And with that ladies and gentlemen, I'll be back--next week with this batch of cupcakes baked and decorated and hopefully out of the Summer Woods.
It did take me eight weeks to quit my smoking habit of two packs a day fifteen years ago. This cold turkey blog cut-back is going to be rough.
