This is our dog, Gypsy, waiting impatiently for the light to change, all a-quiver and alert with the usual one ear up one ear down. Waiting is really hard when you have ideas and the energy to follow them-- and have to wait because of all the other stuff on list and calendar. My solution is to always have a painting on the easel and an image on the mac- something in progress that's all mine. A few minutes thinking about nothing except "does this acid yellow work with this periwinkle blue?" puts a smile on my face. Better than chocolate.
