instantaneous

What I'd like to do this summer is paint every Monday. 9 to 5.
My teaching has stopped, I have a little more time.
But it was really difficult to start. It took me more than an hour of procrastination. I thought - why is this so hard? Just DO it. Treat your painting like you do your stitching - start and see what comes next.

So, I fell back on these marks.

I do feel invigorated. Fresher.

  5. It's always my problem too, getting started is so hard. It's why I usually have half a dozen things going on at the same time, so I don't have to think about it!
