Art collaboration take two

So I have a problem. I agree to do projects despite not being sure I will ever be able to pull them off (um, like selling digi products?). Sometimes this makes for a fabulous challenge and I rise to the occasion. Sometimes I bite off too much and I end up agonizing for weeks and weeks. Here is the story of such a time.

After agreeing to make another painiting for my coworker I went home and cried for two weeks. Then I came up with a vision of how I wanted the painiting to look. Then followed two weeks of mulling over it. When he started asking about the progress I knew I had to get the work started. That's when I had a nervous breakdown in our living room which led my ├╝ber talented painter husband to step in and save the day. Oh how I love him so.

I drew the idea on a piece of paper, explained the effect I wanted and what colours I had in mind.  Then we set to work. Him mostly. It only took about an hour to finish it and it turned out amazing. We both contemplated getting a new canvas and make another painting for my coworker as we both wanted to keep this one. However, we have no space for it in our house so we decided to let it go.

The husband's last words? "Don't take on projects that you know you won't be able to pull off again. Um ... we will just have to see about that, lol.

  1. you are just a very talented couple :) Isn't it great when you have a hubby you can depend on for stuff like that? Mine wouldn't have a clue, but he has other qualities. Very lovely Linda, you are a busy and talented lady!

  2. I smiled as I read your post, because I often do that to myself - bite off WAY more than I can handle. Actually, I think it's just that I don't multitask well. My husband was so mad at me the other day, because I was STILL working on the chef's hats and aprons for my daughter's culinary academy birthday party (which was to be held the next day). "Please don't do this to yourself again," he stated for the nth time.

    :)

    You, my dear. Talent just oozes out of everything you do, and it would be a total shame for you to not create. I'm glad you can push through the crying fits and orchestrate the beautiful things you always do.
