Listings, Impulse Buys and Allergies

The new issue of Art Calender arrived in the mail today. They have a great feature called "the listings" which lists national and international Call to Artists. It occurred to me that this would make a great link to this blog, so I added it to the links list. It is quite extensive, so take a few minutes and check it out. Could be that your next opportunity is just waiting for you to submit an application!

I bought some 300 pound watercolor paper today. I am not sure why. I don't paint in watercolor. But I could always gesso it and paint in oils. It was an impulse buy and I usually end up having to find a place to store those types of purchases, but you never know. I might be inspired to actually use it one of these days.

I seem to be in a creative slump. Could be the fact that I am in the throes of allergy misery. The insidious yellow-green pine pollen has invaded my body, producing massive amounts of mucous. Yuccch. I am self-medicating with all of the over-the-counter remedies I can find. Still yuccch. So by the time I get home I just want to vegetate. Not good for producing art. I am hoping that I can schedule some serious studio time this weekend. (Sunday and Monday) I must get cranky when I don't paint, cuz Hubby not-so-subtly suggested that I start painting something SOON. :) After 30 years, he knows me better than anyone, and sometimes better than I know myself.
