I find it hard to work through distractions. I need to focus and sort of wander into my happy place and ignore everything else. Yesterday my distraction was the tide. When I arrived on location the tide was very far out so I could reach an area I usually can’t get to. While I painted, however, I couldn’t help but keep a constant watch on the tide coming in and my escape route disappearing. It was too much of a distraction and I eventually just packed it in and quit.
I’m not happy with this for a few reasons, but there are some things I do like about it so I won’t set it on fire. Sometimes they just don’t work. It’s always fun to be out trying though.
