And another update on the painting

Full steam ahead! I am determined to finish this painting before my deadline! My self-imposed because it’s husband-imposed deadline!

It’s really foreign to me to work in a 2-D mindset. These buildings I am painting have no dimension beyond what I color them to be. I hope it winds up looking whimsical and not haphazard or lazy.

Today in yoga class we did “Yin Yoga.” Yin energy is feminine energy, and Yang energy is masculine energy. We  held a lot of poses and then meditated for 20 minutes that lasted an eternity. I felt like I was back in preschool, pretending to nap. There I was on my yoga mat (not all that different from the nap mats in preschool), trying to meditate and totally failing at it like I failed at napping back then. I’ve come a loooong way, ha ha! I stared at the ceiling, which has a lot of missing ceiling tiles and stickers on the actual ceiling beyond where the ceiling tiles would be that have phrases about it being smoke and fire-proof. Today, I spent the 20 minutes wondering if Yang energy had designed the ceiling in the room where I was pretending to be meditating. Maybe one day I will become good at meditating, because I am quite good at napping. Although, we just sold our living room furniture, so I don’t see many naps on the couch that I have come to enjoy until we actually own a couch again. I can’t nap on our bed, otherwise I think I’m supposed to nap until bed time and then just go to bed. Looking forward to having a couch again! Until then, I will have my painting to keep me occupied in the living room, where it is currently being painting atop our coffee table. And a whole lot of HGTV. I did finally catch up on the DVR’d Glee episode from Tuesday night, too, while the paint dried.

Have a good day, everyone!
