Monday - Checking in

Well we made it to another Monday!

In the spirit of accountability, I am here to say I didn't work on any paintings this weekend.  I did help with the birthday party craft of Pokemon ornaments, which seemed to be a fun time for the kids at the party.
These are the examples I was asked to paint ahead of time...
  
Here are some the kids worked on...Pikachu was very popular...
I worked at my part time job Saturday evening, and our youngest had the opportunity to volunteer at the camp she attended earlier this Summer, so Sunday we took her up to New Hampshire to drop her off. 
 
 

So even though I could have made time to work on some things, I cleaned out the refrigerator, took care of a friend's cat, and picked up a few groceries for the week. 
There you have it.  Do I feel guilty?  Maybe a little.  I try to rationalize things, but I know I won't finish any paintings until I work on them.  So I have to take that responsibility on myself. I do try to look for beauty in the everyday things, keeping my curiosity handy to explore or capture images with my phone as I go.  (Though some subjects are difficult to capture when they don't sit still...)

Let's see what this week brings!
