Survival Mode...and whats on my easel..

Its Tuesday....and oh, what a relief that is.  One and a half days for the kids left in school, and as I was driving home today, I realized that I am in serious survival mode....











So, here is my journaling for this week...speaking nothing more than pure survival.  Doing what I can to make it through the day, and dragging in DOGG tired, only to do it all again the next day.  My house is seriously trashed from lack of doing anything around here, but...I promise, once school is out...I'll get to it...sigh...All I really want to do is paint and play.  Seriously.
Here is a look at what has been going on on my easel.....
I have been taking an Abstract Painting class on Monday nights, and its oh, so fun.  Way out of my element, but so much fun.


































I am not used to the free flowing trust yourself kind of class that this is, but I'm going along with it as it is such a release after a long day of work....  I am learning to not only trust the process, but enjoy it as well, and that, my friends is quite freeing...
Until next time,
Ophelia

You may feel out of your element, but these are wonderful!

These are wonderful. Love visiting to see what you're up to. And I can entirely relate to survival mode-- I still have 2 weeks with the kids in school and I'm savoring evvery moment! Which means, yes, letting the house go. And yes, I'll get to it later when they're home and I can't work anyway.

Love what you have been doing in your painting class Ophelia... does look like lots of fun... and can totally relate to just wanting to paint and play... it really is the best when we can, isn't it...
