Enjoy Your Today
Week 16 for Life Book is "Quick be here now painting with Alena Hennessy".
This was an interesting assignment. We were to take only 15 minutes to just let the paint flow and do what it wanted to. Alena used Yupo paper and I happened to have some since I use it for my alcohol ink work, so I thought I'd give it a try. There was no way for me to do this in only 15 minutes though as acrylic just doesn't dry quickly on the Yupo. And, I also have a life, phones ring, dogs need to go out, or hubby interrupts with whatever happens to be important to him LOL! However, I did let everything just flow with whatever it wanted to do without preplanning or much thought. For some reason, a conversation I had with one of my now grown sons when he was just a young boy kept going through my head. At bedtime, he would ask, "When will it be tomorrow?" To which I would reply, "When you wake up in the morning, it will be tomorrow." Yet, each morning, when he asked if it was now tomorrow, I would have to tell him that no, it was today. This went on for some time until one day he finally looked at me and very sadly said, "It never is tomorrow, is it?"
Enjoy your today!
