I distract easily, no news there. This morning thought I would knock out submitting images for the spring pastel show. Finally found what I was looking for, put them in a separate folder to be adjust in size-dpi-labeling. Every show requires something different. Who knew being an artist would make you somewhat of a computer geek.
E-mailed the images and signed up on line after taking a tea break, watching the hummingbirds and listening to the mourning dove. While I was looking in several files that were labeled art I would come across others near by titled: trees, flowers, hummingbirds...I have several pieces in process and have references for them. I still printed out more with ideas for new pieces. I justify these distractions with the thought that I could use this image for this show or that project. Maybe it is just a little better picture then what I think I have or maybe the same one I already have printed.
Along with these distractions are some beautiful memories. Traveling to new places. Hiking new trails or maybe just sitting in my backyard with family and friends.
