It's only the middle of the week and already it's been more on the 'sucky' side of the scale of 'good to sucky'. I think many people think that my life rolls on in the 'good' side with nothing on the other end of the scale. Well I'm here to tell you that is definitely not the case. If you ever wondered?, at least three galleries a month say, 'no thank you'. I do a boat load of extremely bad work. My physical limitations challenge me daily and some days I feel like my body is held together with band aides. This week alone a deal I've been working on for a month was finally finalized and then yesterday it fell through. I've come to learn that a 'done deal' really isn't, but this one was especially disappointing. Two galleries have said 'no thank you' and I was barely able to walk on two of the three days so far. Plus the usual boat load of awful work. So there you go. Sucky! Just in case it always looks like rose colored glasses.
On the plus side? I learned a ton of stuff on the deal gone bad, I finished three good paintings, which seems like a miracle, my body is working pretty darn good today and little ships keep docking with new and wonderful possibilities. Usually it is all pretty evenly balanced, but a heavy load of the negatives so far this week. Anyway, on I go.
The painting below is one of the little poem pieces. The other three struggle to find their voices and I continue to give them room to find their way.

Oh, and now blogger decides where it places photos and titles? Well so be it! Not where I would have chosen, but I'll take whatever I can get at this point. I'm sure I'm on the way to get an attitude adjustment this afternoon. See you all later this week!!
