So Much Stuff

So Many Distractions
I'm trying to get things straightened around for my classes to begin next week.  There are so many distractions on my work tables  -  sketchbooks to work in, sketchbooks to work from, paintings to finish,  paintings to start.  There are stacks of sketchbooks, piles of paper, clipboards of upcoming class information, things I want to be able to get my hands on, things I don't know what to do with   .   .   .

If it sounds like I'm complaining, I'm not.  I love this stuff, and I love the possibilities it all represents. I had intended to go out painting this morning, but it's raining.  We'll try for this afternoon, and I'll try to get all of this "stuff" in some kind of order by then.

The sketchbook page at the bottom was done yesterday  -  very hot and sunny.  The house is very complicated with many odd angles and at a difficult view point. To get it down, I just did a very quick continuous line drawing and didn't worry about what was what.  I'm happy with it.  It is that house to me.   Don't forget  -  your sketchbook page is your sketchbook page, and that's all that matters.
