Sitting Still

Lightning Bug - Acrylic on Wood

Sometimes you start something, put it down and it sits. And sits. and sits.

You stare at it, knowing something is missing but you can't put your finger on what exactly that is. 

Then suddenly one day... its time. You pick it up and it all makes sense. You know where to go and it flows so easily.

It happens with paintings all the time. I have several waiting to be finished but something needs to happen first. Love how that works. 

I'm seeing that pattern in normal life too. Stillness is hard but necessary. It all comes out perfectly in the end, no matter how you view it in the present.
