The first week here is a blur. It's always the same. It takes time to set up shop in a new place. Now two weeks in I am happy to report that things are going well and lots of work is getting done.
We get up early and have a cup of coffee then walk a couple blocks to Audubon Park, do a lap and feed the ducks. Then we're back at our desks ( or easel ) by 9am and we work until about 3 or 4 o' clock. At that point we meet to decide what to do with the rest of the day: keep working, do chores, go grocery shopping, go for a bike ride or have a bourbon and sit on the porch.
That's most days.
For now I am happy with my momentum—4 paintings completed and 4 more in the works...
