So I am making good progress with my parents painting, the lake portion is done now and all I have left are the trees, houses and the sky across the lake to finish. I am feeling pretty good about it now, like I am on a roll with it. I took a much needed break from it over the 4th of July weekend, I should have taken a break earlier, it was actually a long weekend for me, I didn’t come back to the painting for a whole week. I even tried not to think about. I was most definitely putting way to much pressure on myself and I just needed to relax myself. I think I did that with the long break I took.
I had the best time with my friends and family this holiday. We all spent the entire holiday outside in the sun having BBQS, corn hole tournaments, tubing, swimming and just plain old having a great time. We ate garbage food, stayed up late enjoying the bonfires and had our own fireworks show the nights that the lake association didn’t have theirs. Won then the lake had theirs we went out the boat and watched them up close. It was awesome. Just what I needed to be able to take my mind off of the painting.
I had to go back to work after having just four days off but I want back to my parents house for the remainder of time that my brother and his family were in town. They live in another state so I tried to spend as much time over there as possible. They were there for a week so for I week I concentrated on nothing else except having a good time. But now, it’s time to go back to reality, that means back to work and back to the painting.
I went back to the painting with a force I didn’t really know I had, I spent every moment possible working on it, within a week I had completed over half of what I had left and it looks amazing. I know that my parents are going to love this. I am proud of what I have already completed and it totally shows in the work.
Since the painting isn’t fully complete yet and I am spending as much time as I can on it, I am going to cut this post short and get back to the painting, I’ll post again once I am finished!
Thanks guys, I hope you all had a good 4th!
