Work was ok today. A lot of stuff went wrong but that is why they pay me. I am taking training course for work which I have a test next Wednesday. I have to study for so I have to paint quickly if I want to do both.
This painting is of Bernal hill from 16th street. In my head before I painted it I was kinda all over the place and anxious from work. When I started the painting in my head I was negative. Accepting that this painting would fail and I was concerned with the outcome. About an hour in I started to feel very relaxed and I was painting again because it was enjoyable. I think the frustration in the beginning comes from the work day. At first I treat the painting as work. Half way through I remember ahhhhhhh I am not at work and I am painting. I become less concerned with the outcome and life is simple and good again.
