Old and New

I pulled out a bunch of old beginning paintings from  2004
 So fun to see them and see how I'm painting now verses then
 My easel is about filled to the brim with on going canvases 
 Lately I feel like I have so much to give out and never enough time
 so I generally fall asleep around 8 and get right back up sometime between 4 and 5am
 so I can get right back to it
 Sometimes, because I'm crazy I will join a swap of sorts 
I think something is calling for direction and these little swaps can give my brain a rest from thinking about all those canvases calling for my attention
 this happens to be a deck of cards swap, which requires paper and adhesive and very little paint 
so I've had to set up a section for this particular project

So glad to see another messy work table. How fun to see your earlier works. They are lovely too.
I used to cringe at and hide my first attempts, but I now look at them differently and feel a motherly love over them. I want to protect my early efforts and the bravery it took to do them!
