We were scrambling because of another house viewing last night. We had three this week, which is good, but three this week took me away from my sketching and I am four sketches behind now. I will chip away at it after lunch, and maybe do smaller pictures or something.
During one night of insomnia where I only got 3.5 hours of sleep, I sat in my special chair in the bedroom journalling and then I took a piece of paper and started writing out my plan for next year’s 52 weeks of sketching. I had been thinking of ramping it down to a bi-weekly sketch but this new Imaginary Trip project excites me, I don’t want to abbreviate it. It can be done and it is much on my mind, which is why I need the discipline to catch up with my current sketches.
It’s hard to think or draw and paint on 3 hours of sleep and when every second day you have to scramble for house viewings by strangers. Blah.

“All that is the fruit of love and honest perseverance will have a long-lasting future.”
I like that thought of “honest perseverance” as it feels good to accomplish things, to finish what you start, to get the pictures out of your mind and down on paper. I like making art, and that IS the long-lasting future.
