Oof

There have been times in the past where I have felt guilty or lazy for the fact that on a full painting day I would generally only actually have brush to canvas for 4-6 hours.

I think I was underestimating the amount of energy painting takes - not just physical, but mental, emotional, creative, and magickal as well.

My evidence for this?

That at 9 months pregnant, an hour of painting makes me feel like a pre-pregnant me just hiked 6 miles. Uphill. In the snow. With a duck on my head.

It's that accomplished, weary-yet-energized tired, though. And it's a goooood painting :)
