I have heard that pears are one of a daily painter's best subjects but today I have tried twice to paint a small work and have had a hard time producing art with them. I think I forgot how to paint today..... To purchase, contact my email address sgalda@aol.com Thanks so much for stopping by, tell me what you think-leave a comment!

I know well that feeling where it's like suddenly you've forgotten how to paint... It's such a weird feeling.

I'm with Jala--I know that feeling well, too, Sandra! Have been having a full 2 weeks of it. Your work doesn't show it, though. These are lovely! I particularly like the solo pear on the drape.

Thanks for the nice commments and encouragement! It is really distressing and makes you loose confidence! Maybe it is a result of fatigue? Hope it blows over!

Linda, I am thrilled to meet someone who actually knows what the old firm tapes were like. In fact most people dont even know what I mean at all when I mention the firm! Yes, I know exactly what you mean by that tape, I did that one 3x a week for about 5 years before I changed out to about 4 of the early ones that I rotate. they dont do it all but they do address basic fitness. At this point the firm is all I am doing...I was running several times a week too for 30 min....but I decided there were other things I needed to do so cut back. I totallyagree with you---weight lifting is the most efficient answer for fitness!!!
