There's no better way to familiarize yourself with new leadership than by reading all their backgrounds and then spending a few minutes sketching them, before making more calls to Senators to voice my opinion--of which I have many. That's how I've been spending my mornings as Ellis and I twiddle fingers waiting for his surgery next Tuesday. The anxiety of what lies ahead has definitely cooled my desire to paint, but I have managed to scrutinize my gals Waiting At The Gate. They need taming. Simplifying. Lightening up. And fading out. It's an ambitious painting, one that demands concentration at a time when my concentration is elsewhere. Short sessions will have to suffice.
