changing out the water…

jana lamberti silk art changing out the water

one of my LEAST favorite things about painting is…changing out the water. seems ridiculous, i know. but once i start…i start, and i can’t stop and i don’t want to move in any direction other than side to side in my studio.  the sink is a whopping five steps away.  its ironic because on a good morning i go to the gym just to walk…sometimes even run (when the stars align) that. but to walk those five steps in the midst of painting…no thank you.   my husband says i do this with electronics and power cords as well (let them die because i don’t want to walk 2 ft to plug said electronic in) but i digress.

i think i fear my muse will flee if i change the water out.  changing water means i need to stop. stop painting. stop my creative process. stop something i don’t want to stop.  so i don’t.  then i get annoyed. and, at times, ruin what i’m doing because I NEED CLEAN WATER. so could someone please solve this problem for me? because i’m at a loss.

these babies below–painted in the company of CLEAN water–are a bit more of a sneak peak for my january show at a NH gallery.  but that’s another blog post for another day (soon)…

for now… i hope you enjoy the pics (and solve my water problem because it annoys me) ;)
