shhhh I'm working

Procrastination schmocrastination. I'm feeling better and just to prove I'm working, I have the evidence. No, it ain't pretty (and it won't be for awhile), but stay tuned and I'll try to jump through a few hoops before we head out for our summer holidays.

Though I call it by a variety of names, I did touch on my problems with procrastination recently. Vicki tackled the subject properly with this post. Now I discover that there's actually a home for us on-line. Enter Procrastination Central.

I always love watching the process, Andrea. It will be nice to see it also when it is finished.
Are you coming to the praries for your holidays? Yeah right...when you've got all that unbelievably beautiful territory to explore in your own province.
I wish your family well. I'll be checking for photos.

Looks great so far. Beautiful colours.

I love the quote, too - it's perfect!

What do you mean it ain't pretty...yet? I'll buy it right now, as is, for -- how much?

As a repeat customer, I want a deal.

I enjoy seeing your sketchbook and the rough in of the painting and look forward to seeing the final outcome.

BTW, I'm an expert procrastinator if you ever need any assistance. In fact, as I write this, I'm delaying taking my dog out to do her business for the evening.

That's me!

I love the way you organise your painting on your sketchbook.

Thanks for the link to the procrastination site, my talented friend. It allowed me to put off a lot of other things. As for your work, I'm with Brian, I love watching your process because I am invariably fascinated (and enchanted) with your results. You are so wonderfully gifted I tend to sit in awe.

Brian: It's not out of the question (though it is for this year). Greg and I have been planning the prairie trip for, oh, 10 years now! It's gotta happen one day.

Alda: Uh-oh. The final colours are going to be so different... :(

WW: You, my friend, can have it at a deep discount. I'll pay you! :)

KJ: When I read funeries I thought it was soemthing funereal. Not KJ! FUNeries -- ah. Of course! Just don't have too much FUNery at your party without me, OK?

Cynthia: I will definitely call on your expertise -- if I ever get around to it. :)

Cream: Some people call them sketchbooks. Mine are really for thumbnails and ideas and recording of favourite motifs. There's not much actual ART in them.

Ian: Thank you and I'll remember to call on you when I'm feeling my most worthless/untalented. Funny -- I've noticed that those who feel the least threatened are the most supportive. You have achievement and talent in your own field so there you go. (That came out sort of wrong -- I think you know what I'm driving at, so thanks again.) By the way, any chance of getting an advance copy of the Great Canadian Novel?
