One day I will have more than 3 hours to paint a picture. One day I will have more than 3 hours to paint a picture. One day I will have more than 3 hours to paint a picture.
I figure if I say it enough, it will magically happen. I guess I could spend more than one naptime to work on a painting.... Not that I'm complaining though. Having such a short timeframe really makes me kick myself into high gear (no pun intended here I swear), and it is such a great motivator. If I had more time to work on a painting, it would be more precise and tightly painted, but I actually don't even see that as a good thing. I can probably say that I wouldn't be painting nearly as often. Ah, the irony......
This painting took two hours and twenty minutes, and then I had to race to make dinner (fried rice with leftover chicken), all before the babies got up. I felt like I was rushing for sure, and I can tell that I rushed it a bit, but I am really happy with the results. This painting was ambitious to say the least, and I am very proud of myself that I was able to step up to the challenge. Not to mention my daughter pooped for the first time on the potty all by herself during naptime. I am so proud of her I can't even stand it.
All in all, it's been a great 3 hours.
