My mind is whirling, can’t shut off the thoughts. What’s the old Buddhist phrase “Thoughts Without a Thinker”. We’re in the middle of a real estate transaction with all the vicissitudes of dealing with realtors, sellers, house inspectors, appraisers, etc. At our age should we even thinking of relocating???? The only way to calm the mind and put all the “what if’s” aside is to paint. I am working on a self portrait. The neck and jaw need to be darker and I have to determine whether to mix green or blue with the flesh tone to keep the value right and get the right shadows. So, off to the art room and paint mixing.
