“Unfortunately when I start to talk or when someone watches over my shoulders, my pencil either stops or I draw meaningless lines.” (E. J. Hughes)
In the Andean city of Quito, I am using a friends computer (with Spanish keyboard) and unable to transfer images from the cameras memory chip. Tomorrow night from the cloudforest of Mindo, I will most likely be online with access to this weeks images!
While painting at Restaurant Exclusivo last week, I often lost my concentration when others were standing nearby and talking, lauging, critiquing the painting in progress. I noted that my lines wavered in the direction of the bystanders and the direction my minds eye wandered.
My friends are accustomed to a “No Talking Zone” sign that I often display when I am seriously working. It helps remind them that noises pull my attention away from my painting!
Signing off for the day and will most likely see you Thursday night!
