According to Auguste Renoir
“You’ve got to be a fool to want to stop the march of time”
I worked hard not to be a fool but found it hard to keep up with the passing of time in March! It passed like a whirlwind of preparations for our caravan trip of a lifetime, social gatherings with family & friends and day to day living.
I did manage to complete the second in my series of Landmark Flora:
Gumtree Fountain and Marri Blossoms, Kalamunda WA
We’re almost ready to go – later TODAY!!
Everybody has the same energy potential. The average person wastes his in a dozen little ways. I bring mine to bear on one thing only: my paintings, and everything else is sacrificed to it…myself included.”
― Pablo Picasso
I spent lots of time in my studio during February but not a lot on art. My studio is also my sewing / crochet room and home office. I don’t think I’m wasting my time on all my other activities but it certainly reduces time and energy for painting.
I did refine my Winter Donkey Orchids – Mundaring Weir painting
Winter Donkey Orchids – Mundaring Weir
and worked on the design for the next in this new series – I’m not game to show it yet!
I was more productive on my sewing machine – creating dresses for little girls and busting my stash!
Flower Pot Pinny
My March output may be even less as we’re preparing our home, garden, vehicles, caravan and ourselves for a 6 month caravan trip starting in April!
