After having had a computer so accessible for so many years, I found out this past week what it was like to be without one as mine had problems and couldn't boot up. It shows how much a part of one's daily life a computer has become. I also discovered how necessary it is to back up the important information and having it in a paper file.
In many ways it was an opportunity as I rearranged my studio and spent time with my family. I didn't get any painting done though but plan on changing that this week. Painting is also a necessity to my well being. I can go a few days without painting then find that my fingers begin to feel the need to hold a paint brush while my mind is busily looking at what is around me. Noting colors, shapes, shadows, trying to mix the colors in my mind that I see.
