Something Awful Happened!!

Something really awful happened at my house today!! I cleaned it!! Yikes. Whatever happened to me?? What crazy, insane, nuts thing came over me?? Instead of using my time to paint, I felt compelled to clean. Now there are plenty of times when I clean, knowing full well that this is a procrastination technique that is just another funny but sometimes necessary part of the creative process. I can live with that one. But today was shear compulsion and getting sucked into the holiday frenzy. Something I've been blissfully unaware of until TODAY!! I'm having company this weekend. BTW, this company could care less about my floors being clean, the piano being dusted or the rugs being vacuumed.They would much rather see my newest work.


I have lots of paintings waiting for me and I'm excited about finishing them. I have a sneaking suspicion that these paintings are more important than a clean kitchen floor. They are calling to me...The floor not so much!! All the fun holiday festivities can proceed with a dirty floor and a layer of dust. We will enjoy them just as much and the paintings can be finished. So please stop me before I clean anything else!!!
Still awaiting finish!!

Marla, you crack me up! Once I cleaned so much that I was so full of joyful creativity afterwards. I think it's part of an inner cleansing too. LOL
