Painting in the Park Pt. 2

Today I had purpose. A simple goal in mind with no exactness on the outcome.
It seems to me that as much as I love art (or dance, or movies, or any other hobby) I am not the type who can work on a single action for more than a couple hours at a time.
I felt very confident in the idea of creating a great, relaxing environment and working for about an hour, or just as long as I needed.
resting to read a sec

I started out not feeling "right", not as comfortable as I had the day before.
I realized it was the chewing gum I was chomping on; too much of a distraction in one place.
But still, there was no "flow", so I read and did an exercise from my book "How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci"---a book that I am finding exciting, entertaining, and enlightening.
The exercise was about reflecting on your influential experiences and how you apply what you learned from them in everyday life. It gave me comfort to think that I really have applied lessons from my successes and mistakes into the way I live my life...
I was content by the time I completed the outside shading of the eye, it needs more work, but I am looking forward to how I might perform differently on a brand new day, in a brand new hour :)
starting to like how it looks
