Sparking and Savoring the Artful Life

Multitasking, or is that my paint brush in my coffee cup?


Whoops! I just put my paint brush in my fresh hot coffee! Dagnabit!!!
Nothing starts your day better than getting right into the creative process while still wearing your Jammies and enjoying your morning coffee. It was so lovely out, I set up my easel and began painting the light on the lake, this is perfect I thought, I can paint and drink coffee at the same time, multitasking!!
Of course here comes the dogs and the ever present tennis balls, no biggie, surely I can play fetch and paint and drink coffee… the same time, easy peasy! This could be my new morning routine! All good! Actually it was working pretty well, except for one little snag, I need to separate the coffee cup from the cup of solvent….. or get used to the taste of oil paint in my coffee……
As long as you are making stuff, I think that’s all that matters!
Enjoy your creativity today!
