Making the Mess

Painted all day yesterday and today - today got sick - ran out of medium and used turpentine in a closed in room. Duh. I sure have a mess going in the study. Taxes 90% ready for tax guy, a million (it seems) unsolicited catalogs, lots of paperwork I still need to condense and sort - why do I save it - it must be in the DMV book by now as a disease - paper hoarding, haha.
Doing a website on which has free sites and a respectable amount of add-ins. Want to download some pics to make a movie to import to home page. I haven't hardly watched any TV for a month and am shocked at how much time it has freed up.
Tomorrow have to go pick up a friend's friend from outpatient and take him home after surgery. Then, I don't know what. Maybe see Alice in Wonderland with my daughter, maybe not. If not, probably maybe go to a potluck at friends' home.
This month is going fast already - little things in the garden are starting to pop up.
My sister should be coming the end of April, so April will be an eventful month. I am for sure going to the Caribbean. I have my tickets and passport just came today. It will be a heaven sent trip for a week, no one but myself to think of, nothing to do but take pictures, and plan a website, and visit with friends. I might be repeating myself - blaming it on the turpentine inhalation and hand bath.
I would send my last painting, but it is a nude, so I daresn't send on internet. I want to do a series, this one has a green background. I want to do one in purple as well - and I started one with red orange background, but it won't go with the skin tones I'm using.

Woman! you know better that to gas yourself! are you going to Eastern or Western Carribbean? I think I like the Eastern better, but it's been so long I don't really remember. Going by yourself? I would love to go somewhere alone, even if it was only for 2 or 3 would be heaven nobody yakking away or any of the other mundane stuff life hands you. I am very happy with my life now, but i really kind of miss solitude, too...I really love being alone, guess that makes me anti social NOT!

Why is creativity always so messy? That's why I hesitate to start projects...I'll just be making more of a mess.
The garage helps, because I can leave my project laid out and don't have to constantly look at the mess I'm making.

Gardenia, where exactly is the mess in the picture? What I see is simply controlled chaos, which is a state of perfection ;-)
