4143: Empowered Day 23

Many interruptions today threatened to pull me away from my two hour art time that I am vehemently sticking to. But I was able to find the time to work on my painting for more than two hours today. Not only that because of these distractions and because of just life getting in the way in general, I’m feeling that I’m building this skill getting into a flow state quickly without a lot of external input. Some of the painting time today I didn’t have any music on or podcasts or anything else. It was just me and the painting and that was fulfilling. I didn’t need anything else. Acknowledging that and doing that has felt good.

For the painting specifically I believe I’m done with the majority of the top that the figure is wearing. The only thing that I want to build into it is the sense of organic shape. Most of it is still following the idea of a bra, but I don’t want that. I don’t think that foliage would grow on a person in a very designed way so after this dries after the skin dries, I’m gonna go back in and really adjust some of its major shape. That may be after I work on some of the background because I’m getting down to the arms and hands, but the background behind them is not where I want it to be yet.

I still have a lot of work to do with this painting, but my motivation, and for my willingness to take it through to its absolute end is still abundant.
