I started this painting last year for someones 50th birthday and put it a side and didn't finish it.

Today I saw it in the someday pile and took it out and finished it. I wonder how many artist are like myself : with a pile half finished ideas.

What usually happens is; I start something, then OMG this great idea hits me and I have to.. I must start it right that minute before the idea is gone. Ideas for me are like fairy wings very quick to disappears into the air. When I finally finish with that idea yet another idea is there and I never get back to the first painting I started. It is kinda of like going upstairs to get something doing 10 things going back down stairs and realizing that you never got what you went upstairs for in the first place. It happens at least once a month.

But I do get back to them and even finish them sometimes.
