Following the i ching


i'm trusting in the wisdom of the i ching and being creative whenever i can...a new term starts today though so time for this will be reduced to slithers. i've probably got my priorities wrong, but i'm just trying to survive. thieves stole my number plates and they are going to clone a car and do bank jobs and i'm going to get millions of parking and speeding fines (or worse).
these pictures aren't finished...i'm not good at finishing....i've finished my entry for seth's call for work....but i'm not good at posting either....i hope it will get there...otherwise it will have to go and sit in the drawer with the sketchbooks from last year's sketchbook project
which never got done.

Kate, don't be so hard on yourself my dear blogging friend! You have your plate full with you dad etc. This may be a time of really enjoying the process of painting and not worrying about the finished product. I love the shapes and colours in your palette. Too bad we aren't neighbours....

oh my goodness...all that self deprecation.

Reminds me of a favourite Addams Family quote. Morticia says to Gomez:

"Dont beat yourself up, darling, that's my job."

Life beats us up quite enough. Dear Kate, do not do that to yourself...

The Addams Family quote above gave me a chuckle. I hope you can make some room in your life for a laugh or two...I also love your palate.

Dear Person Who Is Trying To Be Like Me:

Dispaireth not. If one can misspell despair and get away with it, you, too, may be able to send your art to Seth on May 1st and he will see it and faint with happiness. Mine has been ready for a month and I've been too horrified to send it in. I'm thinking now of cutting a napkin to 5x5 and using a Flair pen to put my private contact information on, and send that in. It's HARD to work on commission! I know how it is! And no advance!

In other news, I'm very sorry about the number plates. Those bast*ds.

It's great fun to see whatever you are doing and whenever you are doing it. I want to try this i-ching deal. Let's see...I need three coins or something? I hope it will tell me something positive, like the message you got. From what I can see of your work....you were most definitely born to make things :) (!)

I do the I Ching also :-}
My usual question is:

What will be the outcome if .....
Seems to be the best way to ask a question.

I'm commenting quite some time after your post. I sure hope that you did not find that the number plate thieves landed you with a load of tickets.
