Sometimes it feels like all around conspires to prevent me from having time to paint, often its just a conversation in my head that has such a strong “cannot” vibe that it erodes my creativity.
This last week its been fires, the hills above us and around us were alight with a serious blaze that had threatened the entire area. Although we spent a night sleeping in our clothes (shoes on) and car packed we were fortunately enough to avoid having to evacuate but the experience and stress left me low energy for the remaining week.
The WiP I posted last week was nicely in theme around head and wastelands (thanks fire!)
It does take me a lot longer to paint anyway, my standards are getting higher so its taking more time to complete things and prone to struggles more and more – its learning I know.

Fire closing (those are forested hills behind the smoke)
Fantastic job by many people to contain it after 5ish days battling.
