A New Light

Here is #58 of my 100 painting project. Another view of the marshes on Edisto Island, South Carolina. With the coming of summer my time is beginning to open up a bit. So I am thinking of ways to take the best advantage of the extra hours. What 'projects' do I want to pursue? Where do I want to put my focus? I already have enough ongoing projects to keep me busy for a very long time. But new ideas keep popping into my head as well. I suppose I need a better filtering system. How do you prioritize your various creative projects? Do you work on more than one at once or do you tackle them one at a time?

i try to have 2 or 3 projects on the go at once, just in case i get bored with one i can move on to another. but sometimes i do find that there just isn't enough time in the day for all the ideas that show up in my head :/

This has a lovely light touch - very soothing to look at.

I'm in a perpetual muddle - I have a butterfly mind so I'm the last person to offer advice!

I love marshlands, Ann. They are so rich with life, aren't they? Another beauty in this one, for sure! And? I generally only tackle one project at a time. Except when weaving. Then I have to put it aside to paint once in awhile. Weaving I seem to be rather slow with. In fact, I'm slow with painting too. (I have a piece that is waiting for paint but I'm so tired after work that I keep putting it off. I am, however, watching videos of watercolor portrait artists at work on you tube...)

Dear Ann,

Your work is lovely. I wish I could paint like you!

Tnanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I can use all the encouragement I can get.

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

Lovely as always Ann!
Hmmm.. as for your question, I'd love give you a good answer but I don't really have a lot of art projects going on right now. For me, I'd prefer to work on multiple projects at the same time because sometimes when I focus on one for too long, things will go down hill, and I might even get sick of it afterwards... having different things to work on keeps occupied most the time. When I do get tired of one of them, I'll just work on the others, that way I could stay motivated.
