8x10, oil on panel.
I was really not in the mood to paint today, but I felt like I needed to get into the studio.
I keep reading advice from people who say things like, “it’s a hobby, man. Don’t do it if you aren’t in the mood.”
Well you know what? I wasn’t in the mood to run today either, and I did it anyway. It wasn’t my greatest effort ever, but I know it was beneficial. So I’m glad I did it.
Whether I was in the mood or not, I know that the effort is making me stronger. And that makes it worthwhile.
