Get With It, Stop Procrastinating

As Susan Gibson sang about last night in a song she said should be called "Word to Self" .  I'm pretty sure she hasn't recorded it but you can check out her music at http://www.susangibson.com/  She performs about five times a week, if you get a chance to see her ...  go see her.  She is a great story teller, guitarist and singer.  It was a great show.  She is having a free show in Luchenbach today!

Anyway the song is about just doing what you set out to do.  Which is the point of my post.  I have been in SUPER procrastination mode.  I think it is close to depression.  You know you have things to do and you still turn on the TV.  Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and the best thing is just to start one thing.

Barney Davey has some ideas on this post. 

Good ideas for anyone, not just artists.  Get organized and get up off your duff and get busy!

Now where is that list for our trip on Thursday????

Projects in the wings, in no particular order....

  • comission
  • painting for Jennie and Brandon
  • painting for David
  • painting for Carolyn
  • painting for Roxxane and Cody
  • paintings for the gallery
  • etc........
I will start by fixing brunch..... and avoiding my studio.

Sometimes when I wonder why I took on high school art, I remind myself how lazy I am and can piddle away most of the day. It's good for me to have to do something productive. I think depression is a part of of that.

Bag Blog, schedules, routines and just working seem to keep us focused and on track. My mind is still wandering.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children.
