    I have a few that need to be finished. Since spring when COVID started, I had no motivation whatsoever to even pick up my brushes. Note: I don’t have a lot of time to devote to painting anyway. Then I started painting something because I felt like I just had to, maybe escape for a little while into the process of creating some work and listening to some nice music. It did motivate me to start painting again. That said, my emotions have waxed and waned. Part of me was like you said Naomi, “What’s the point?” Then I saw an artist friend of mine who actually was selling his paintings through the gallery that carries his work, and for a pretty good penny. That gave me hope. There are others out there who are also selling prints of their work. All this has made me realize that I have to paint and that I need to do that for myself and my sanity.
