Getting back into the studio after such a long time away has been as painful as pulling out a tooth (by the roots!) No, I don't think I am exaggerating. Yesterday, I spent about 2 hours just drawing in my sketchbook, and FINALLY, it felt like I could touch a canvas with paint. (This was after a failed attempt the previous two days.) I am heading back in there now. I always expect this kind of struggle after being away, but it never gets any easier. I hope to have something new to show you by the weekend.
