Every time...

... when I have a lot on my to do list, all I want to do is paint or draw! Does that ever happen to you?!
work in progress
So, too, this morning and I painted for a while until I really, really had to get going with my list. We are leaving tomorrow morning for a weekend on Amelia Island in Florida, which means I have to get everything ready for our house and pet sitter! And the house is sort of a mess. And I still have some Christmas things to put away. And I have class this afternoon. 

But... I've had had this collaged canvas sitting around since November and it was calling to me. "Silke, come play with me. Everything else can wait!!" So, I quickly created an underpainting for a profile picture. So far so good. I'll probably finish her next week. 

Yesterday, I spent all day on my multi-layered print for my etching class (in color!!) and the proof I printed is beautiful! I'll have to show you when I get a chance to take a picture.

Time to get busy! I hope your day is a wonderful one!! 


My daily list of what I'm grateful for (I've totally forgotten to do this lately):

* a newborn baby boy in my family (congrats to my cousin and his wife!)
* hands covered in paint
* cake for breakfast
* my upcoming fun weekend with Daniel
* some much needed rain yesterday


  1. Liebe Silke,


    In Liebe


  2. Yes, it happens to me a lot! I can see that you have a lot to be grateful for! An upcoming trip too!

  3. You are one busy girl. Enjoy your week-end on the island.

  4. I feel that way, too, quite often! LOL The collage is looking lovely. Hope you enjoy your time away!

  5. This time my to do list is so full, that it totally stops my creativity! But othertimes, when there is some very little left over time,..... it is the same with me. Love!!!!
