Afternoon Glow
 oil on canvas

Okay, I already have to say, whew this habit changing goal is kicking my butt.  If you recall in my last post, I shared with you that I was going to spend more time on the business of art. To fit that into my daily life, I needed to make changes regarding how I was going to spend my time.  I saw this as a big chance to create new habits and get rid of some old time wasting habits. Well, here is where it got interesting, instead of plowing ahead on the ole change-a-roo of  my habits, making me a time efficient machine--my time efficiency got worse. UGH double UGH

Here is my explanation of what happened.  The little gremlin guys all got together and had a summit  They all decided they liked how things were so we'll show her, we will dig in our heals and make it worse.  They figured this strategy would coerce me into going back to the status quo. I'm definitely going to dig deeper and see why these little gremlin guys are throwing up this blocker. However,  what I  know from being a Life Coach  is that blockers almost always appear when someone is attempting a change.  Won't those little guys be blind-sided when I figure this one out.


  1. Amy, Your artwork, and paintings are both just wonderful! I look forward to each of your updates!

  2. What a great piece. What size is it? So much detail.

  3. Aren't YOU the smart one, to outsmart the Gremlins! I could use you around here! I've been a limp noodle since Carol left - and I wasn't the teacher! When you figure it out, let us know... until then, I'm going to get a book, and sit in your 'glow'...

  4. Lovely painting. Even sweeter in person. Don't think too hard. Sometimes you just DO without thinking too much. Follow the heart!
