This watercolor is obviously a tribute to Tiffany Stained Glass Windows. I fell in love with his work and did a number of Pen & Ink/Watercolors that are 'in the style of Tiffany".
It's been a long day, but I feel virtuous because I accomplished so much. Funny how our expectations guide our moods. If I expect to get three things done, and I accomplish four, then I feel great. If only two things get done, I feel lousy. Yet in both cases I am the same person.
Of course, this may lead to a plethora of lowered expectations, because I do enjoy it when I like myself. It's much more fun to be around me when I am in a good mood. And since I do have to live with myself, it bodes well to have me be nice to me.
On the other hand, my Puritan ancestors would be horrified, because they would think I was "not living up to my full potential" -- Like anybody does! But in one sense, I do agree with them: I am not comfortable setting my goals too low. It makes me feel like a slackard.
So I guess I will have to come up with a realistic middle ground of expectations.
In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy today, because it is ending with Time to do Art. Sigh. Happiness.
