on top of the rollercoaster looking down

So I’m painting but I’m struggling. Maybe it’s because the pressure is on to produce for the new galleries or maybe it’s just because I had a long break from painting over our recent holiday. I don’t know, but I know I just have to keep painting through it until it gets better.

Do any of you artists find that your mood is linked to your work? Particularly after I’ve been away from it for a little while I find I go on a bit of a rollercoaster ride with each new painting. Eventually, it comes out level and if a painting doesn’t work, I take as just that, one painting that didn’t work. So what, it’s all part of the process. 

But right now I’m on the top of the rollercoaster looking down!

when’s my turn?

The kids are away and I’m working hard but really not producing anything that I’d want you or anyone else to see just yet. So here’s a painting that you haven’t seen before on the blog that sold down at the Killarney Art Gallery. I think it went somewhere in Germany.
