On a lighter note......


I've tried painting and I just get so frustrated! I've painted over the same 10 x 10 canvas now 4 times! BUT....I just wrapped up my 6th Zumba class last night :) I'm down 13 lbs and feeling so much better!
I have about 20 to go. It sure comes off slower now that I'm 'ancient' but it's all good. At least it's coming off.

As for my art.....uff, I'm just stale it seems. I think I need to change things up a bit again. Maybe a landscape.....or florals.....or critters. The girls seem to get worse the more I do. Hopefully Saturday I will have some time~no pressure and just see what happens.

Hugs to you all!
Darla

Good morning Darla, this coming from another 'slug'...I haven't been keeping up with my blog friends like I should and I've missed some good posts here! I've been hearinf so much about Zumba but can not find anything like it around here. I'm sure it'll catch on sometime, then I need to go!
Sorry to hear about the water in the basement, and glad you didn't get zapped..

I'll watch for your newest inspiration in painting. it'll come..I think spring fever takes us in different directions sometimes. And I say this as the snow is falling...again ):

I'll be better at visiting...
Have a great weekend.

Hi Darla, that sounds great with your Zumba fun and weight loss! Way to go!! :) And with painting, I feel that way, too, from time to time. Then it's always good to shake it up, use a new medium or like you thought, a different theme... Have a great Friday!! Love, Silke

Oh I can relate Darla...Stale is the exact word I'm feeling these days with my artwork too. Hope you find some inspiration soon :-)

Congratulations on the zumba results with weight loss. You must feel so much better. As for your art it will return to it's grand splendor when your muse is not so exhausted from zumba time! LOL Happy creating...

Congratulations on your weight loss, Darla.....Zumba sure sounds like a fun way to lose it.

I had a similar slump with my painting last year....covered a canvas numerous times before I ended up walking away from it altogether. I've only just started to get back into painting these past couple of weeks. I think I needed the break as I'm finally enjoyed the painting process again. Hang in there...the 'staleness' will pass ~ xo

Hey girlie!

I want to see some of your paintings, I miss them, I feel so out of touch! Just because of everything that has been going on, but now I need a Darla fix!

Love,
