Normally, painting takes my mind away from work. It is an activity quite opposite to my technical profession and helps me keep a balance. Yet, when the stress from office politics and nonsense at work passes a certain level, I loose any desire to paint. Not having painted for days then depresses me more, and the vicious circle feeds itself.
Last weekend I tried to force myself to grab the brushes and I ended up going overboard with squiggling and splatters, producing the crazy flower above. Didn't feel any better though. You can't force a peace of mind.
Finally today I managed to do some productive work and with that came the desire to put paint on paper...
And there is so much to catch up with in blog-space!
