Into The Light
I was in a dark, fractured mood yesterday. I hadn't painted for a few days and as soon as I began again – on a pale watercolour I'd built up over a week or so – I knew it was a mistake. Within a few hours, I managed to ruin the work. The self-sabotage was so obvious that it plunged me into an even deeper depression.I thought today might be another wash-out. Then, somehow, unexpectedly, I recovered. All afternoon, I worked without a break on four drawings for my Dangerous Career Babe series. The hours pass quickly when I'm productive – maybe because it's the closest I get to some sense of peace.
