I believe most artists will struggle at times to stay motivated or focus on their painting every day - so many distractions. Currently my struggle is the beautiful weather, after a LOOOONG harsh winter, pulling me outdoors. I am enjoying biking, hiking and gardening these last weeks and being inside the studio / office / work is difficult.
That is why today I decided I shall try to do some daily painting 'en plein aire' or paint outside for awhile. As you can see below my current attempt to get some paint down has been a struggle.

|OOOO the Pretty Fern Leaf peony in my garden just outside my window, has finally bloomed for the first time ever!!|
|Oh I just need to make some baskets for the front porch|
|What was I doing... oh yeah, OOOps, I think I need to repaint the sky and maybe that grass too. Maybe I will just go outside for awhile for inspiration instead.|
