I like to make note of the new moon every month – it’s considered a good time for beginning new projects. I’ve been spending a lot of time getting ready for my upcoming open studio and trying to create a thoughtful plan for the next year.
So my new moon goal will be to do some painting! It’s often surprising to me, even after all these years, how much time I spend not painting as an artist. There’s so much paperwork and promotional things and organizational stuff. Who knew?
But I have a window where I can get some painting done — I’m going to pick up an on-going series of backyard bird portraits I’ve done on and off over the past few years. Six to eight small paintings which I will hopefully get done in time for the annual small works/holiday season.
Now, if cold viruses, jury duty, and the beautiful fall weather can stop getting in the way, I can get back to work!
