This morning began earlier than the lazy usual, leaving time for some morning exercises and reading on the balcony before settling in to do some work over breakfast and a movie. Between last night and this morning I almost started and completed three Moleskine covers which is pretty much a record for me, despite being a relatively fast worker. I suppose not having painted for a couple of weeks, if not months (!!) has made the inspiration and ideas bubble up inside me until I could resist it no longer. Not that I have been avoiding painting - not at all! It is rather that I have had a lot on my mind and have been trying to make the most of the very limited time I have left with Björn and Europe, as I begin my trip home on saturday evening. Either way, I am very pleased with the artistic yield of the last 2 days and hope I have many more of them to come!
