In the wee small hours of the morning ...

Upon being woken up by our pup the other morning ... and I should say "early" morning ... I found that I could not fall back to sleep. Didn't have the heart to put him back in his crate - so, to the laundry basket he tucked himself, as I did in my studio ... there is just something about being an artist that allows no realism of orderliness in one's schedule - My head is saying, "Get back to bed! The kiddos will be up in three hours!" - - while my soul is screaming, "Paint, Woman, Paint!" So .... I painted ...






Gosh ... that felt good!

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

Absolutely charming and precious painting! You are such a talented artist! I love those quiet moments late at night when inspiration strikes and there is that need to create. As a fellow artist, I hear ya! ;)
