The swing of things.

I always need a vacation after my vacations.

I've finally caught up with a few things, though, and I actually started painting today!! I've been missing it too. Leading up to Hawaii, I wasn't able to get much done, color-wise, and spent more time focusing on my "business." I've been finding lately that I actually enjoy learning more about that aspect. It's fun. It's kind of like a game. It also takes this massive amount of time, which is why I sometimes find myself reading html code for hours or updating my various online sites instead of painting. (Let alone the time I spend in photoshop and iPhoto editing all my images, but that's another story.)

I've even been reading a lot of business articles and studying marketing techniques of businesses I admire. :o) I have a bunch of ideas I want to implement, and new goals to work on so that I can grow in what I do. Very exciting.

Which is why I was thrilled to get back to my colors today. I have way too many white canvases lying around. I started 4 things right off the bat. There is color swirling around in my brain that I don't even know what to do with. It's been hard to focus.

I'm sort of overflowing with ideas at the moment. I blame Hawaii.
