Today was the day of extreme distractions. I brought it on myself. There were good distractions and bad distractions and no, I can't share them with you because they are very personal.
I worked diligently to get out of my own head and just focus on the painting, once I finally got back into the studio this afternoon. (See the first photo above). But, it just didn't work. I started out okay but I knew the longer I painted that it wasn't what I wanted. So, I wiped away the painting. I just had to do it. (You can see below what it looked like when I'd had enough!) Now all that's left is a white canvas and a fresh beginning.
This is the longest period of time that I have ever spent just focused on one thing, one subject matter. I think maybe I hit a brick wall. I'm not sure. Tomorrow I go back to the routine that's been working for me, and I will work toward eliminating distractions. Wish me luck!
