Unless you can throw paint at a canvas, draw dark, devil like drawings or otherwise channel frustration and anger in some creative fashion, it’s best to postpone creative activities that require at least a steady hand (when you’re in a bad place.)

As I can only speak for myself, really, I’ll say that’s the case for me. I’m understandably overwhelmed and exhausted and any excess, unexpected stress can make me pop.

All this only a preface to the fact that I overworked a not very good start to a blue jay in the style of the last three pages. I spent way too much, frequently interrupted time on it and it sucked. Plain and simple. No way to save it. So, I turned the page and took a different tack. Glad I did.

Not a delinquent but definitely a juvie.

    This is my favorite. I can see the determination to take off on this one. I love the colors (tropical or painted bunting). This is truly watercolor performing.

    All rightee, then. Thank you very much and I’ll tell you all in detail why at a later time. XO
