What happens when I'm frustrated...and procrastinating

Onyx 11x14

So I'm working on a commission. I'm super excited about it. So much so that I'm doing a couple of different versions of the images I have dancing in my head. One painting is 1/2 way there. Another image is just a series of sketches at this poing and I just can't seem to get it out on paper. So out of frustration, I decided to work on the 1st idea I have for the commission and try to finish it. But as luck would have it I didn't have the motivation to work on it tonight. So I sat there and stared at it....and stared at it...and stared at it some more hoping that I could convince myself to just geterdone!

Nope, didn't happen. Out of frustration that the commission wasn't coming together I painted this piece. I wanted to feel like I could at least make SOMETHING work! I should've just soldiered through and worked a little harder on making the images for the commission come together but I just didn't feel like dealing with it. Tomorrow is another day, right? I've gotta make good on this three day weekend and paint my little derriere off!

I think (no, I KNOW) that listening to your heart where art is concerned is the right thing to do. Look at what you created!! I LOVE this piece!!
