I’m a perfectionist, obsessive and demanding, I expect only the very best from myself and my personal opinion of myself seems to weigh heavily on whether or not I’ve attained that perfection…. now that I’ve cracked, and faced the worst I am ready to go on again, building up, pushing further and faster ahead until I crack once more from the strain and the lovely cycle starts over again…. but if I skip a day or so here and there try not to think too badly of me – I’m probably in the studio because, luckily, painting is something that almost always gives me some measure of peace.


Slump 12 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum I think my phplist went a little haywire this weekend. I was creating my newsletter mailings as I usually do and it crashed and I think in the effort to try and fix it I may have sent out multiples of the same newsletter to people…. it seems to be one issue after another after another and I’m just not sure I can keep it up – it just looks so unprofessional.


Masquerade – 10 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum my House has been under siege for the past few months…. between losing my driveway and now my front stairs (rendering me a prisoner in my own house) and being assaulted at all hours by machinery and power tools I almost lost it today at the renderers who decided to start outside my bedroom window at 8am with the radio blaring…. luckily my studio is still a place I can go to chill, I put on my headphones and I can almost blot them all out.
