Does anyone else have this “issue” ? I have the most beautiful studio…… we built an addition onto our house a few years ago. Tall windows – 8 ft. with small panes that look out on my beautiful garden. Lots of room…. of course with great light. BUT…… with this EXTREMELY COLD WEATHER we’re having it’s VERY,VERY,VERY cold in there. The room is off the kitchen, heated only from the heat that fills the rest of our little house but the room has no heat source of its own. Needless to say , I’m not very motivated to go into that room and paint. It’s not that I’m not feeling creative ….. I’m restless with ideas and desire to get to work but , really, THE COLD!!!! I have been able to work for a couple hours before getting sooooooooooo chilled that I had to stop but that was when the temperature was at least above freezing. With this EXTREME cold, -50 degrees wind chill factor , well, I’m discouraged.
I will dress as if I were going outside …. a few layers , boots, maybe even a hat…. see how long I can stand it. I can bring some acrylics into my living room and work at the coffee table I suppose but I have big oil paintings in progress in the studio that I really want to work on.
I should have begun teaching classes today but cancelled because of the horrible cold…. so I have one extra day of “vacation” to ‘enjoy’. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….. what shall I do ? what shall I do? Chant and meditate on the fact that
I HATE WINTER…… OHMMMMMMM……..
Thanks by the way for everyone’s well – wishes about my lost sketchbook. UPDATE! It hasn’t been found or turned in …. it’s just gone….. in the wind…. in someone else’s possession (, ENJOY! ), in a landfill somewhere ( that’s what hurts the most) , and I’ve pretty much just resigned myself to it’s loss. Que sera – sera !
STAY WARM EVERYBODY !
