Shondra again and I DID it!!

Shondra (2)
11" x 14"
Oil on Masonite

I am so freakin' proud of myself! I did it! I got up this morning, exercised a little bit, did my Spanish lesson and PAINTED, before getting wrapped up in my digital assignment. I finished Shondra, the painting I started on Tuesday morning and I am pretty darn happy with it - not perfect but "good enough." As a Recovering Perfectionist - "good enough" is my goal- I am proud of me for finishing something too - something I seldom do!
Hmmm - I just remembered the verse "pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall" - but I think this is an OK kind of pride....maybe I should say I am happy with myself today - actually that's more accurate anyway - (whew)
Now my only problem is - I am out of time for today and I didn't get my digital assignment work done and I have a GRADE depending on that. Always something huh. Hmmmm... I don't know what I am going to do about that - but all in all I am pretty happy with today - tomorrow will be better I hope. Tomorrow I shoot for this: getting up - exercising - Spanish - do a small still life and then do my digital assignment. I think I can do it!
I am looking forward to tomorrow - and more art making... YAY!
