Not enough time... only one me
Just like always, it's almost impossible to work full time as an illustrator and still find time to paint. Especially when there's a house that needs painting (and still isn't done) along with umpteen other naggy little chores.
But there's only one me! But I still have my sights set on painting, and I still enjoy looking at my paintings every day... so my heart is still in it. Just I don't have the time.
I've been totally swamped with three large illustration projects... all at the same time and the dog days of summer have been hard to deal with too.
Oh well, no big deal... thinking about painting can be good too.
