I recently completed this painting, titled “Acceptance” (32″x32″) and couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate time to introduce it.  I had actually sketched it out and then got sidetracked with another series, leaving it to wait.  When I finally put it back on the easel it made me kind of emotional.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I am pretty hard on myself when it comes to working and constantly maintaining some sort of forward momentum.  This painting reminds me to accept that nothing goes perfectly and that it’s OK.  The days I think I’ll get a lot done in the studio are the days my sons need me most, the weeks slip by without posting new work to this site, and half of every list I write seems to go unfinished but I keep going and accept that it will all work out in the end!
