Today I am celebrating Fall. Eating my pumpkin spice bagel, taking the day off from finding a job and painting a fall inspired journal page. Yep, been looking for a job for about a month now and -- nothin'! It's a very time consuming and emotionally draining process, especially when no one calls. It might be easier if I: 1) would take a job in ANY industry, but I want to work in the Building and Design Industry; 2) was willing to work full-time, but I AM a Mom after all, and that comes first; and 3) had relevant work experience in an actual office that doesn't date back 18 years. Oh well, today I'm NOT going to worry about it and I AM going to enjoy doing other things.
I'm always amazed at artists who can complete a painting in a day...I can't. I either get tired of working on it, get frustrated and need to set it aside awhile, or need to let it dry before going on. Even the journal page above wasn't done in one day. I'd like to consider it my painting for the day even though it's only a journal page background.
