After Art Walk weekend (recovery)

Last weekend was the 2014 Whyte Avenue Art Walk, and I had a new location this year.  The painting I began at my booth in front of the Blues on Whyte sits on my easel, waiting with my open pastel box for me to come back and finish it.  I look at it and think, it only needs another hour or two, maybe…I’ll get back to it soon!  But I don’t seem to have the energy.   I haven’t recovered yet from the energy it took to

  • prepare for the 3-day weekend event
  • work all weekend at my booth and then
  • return to work at my day-job the week afterward

But the weekend is here again, and I am positive that by tonight or tomorrow for sure, I’ll have recovered enough energy to finish the painting and maybe even start a new one!   In the meantime, here are a few photos:
