We have had a couple of cooler days. I guess mid-nineties is much better than 100+ temps. Still, I am ready for fall. August is hard on me. Change is in the air. Today I painted with the Ladies. I did these three small paintings. I did the lemons first - not too exciting. So I tried the cow - better maybe. Then I made the Ladies do a fast and simple painting - choosing an easy flower. The object of this game was to paint fast, drop in color, and let things happen. They did some nice work.
I told the ladies that I was going to take a sabbatical from painting with them. They took it well. I need to focus on my students and my home. I need to get my priorities right. Painting with the ladies may not be the right thing to give up, but it is where I am starting. Sometimes I get too strung out with all my commitments, and I do not do well at the things I do. I want to be a better teacher this year. I want to continue my ASL class. If these changes do not make good in my life, then I may have to give up blogging. That would be tough, but it is time for change.
