Motivation, Part II (Take What You Get When You Get It)

Following up on my previous post concerning motivation for painting, I wanted to say that I finally, finally got my brush wet with paint (which sounds like innuendo, but isn't) this morning.

After going to see "A Haunting in Connecticut" (Joe's capsule review: "Hide and seek in the House of the Damned", or, more succinctly: "This movie sucks. A lot.") and subsequently overdosing on BoLS and FTW Blogger Group blog posts to cleanse my pallet, I felt compelled to get out one of my already-primed terminators, and lay down a base-coat of Ultramarine Shadow.


It's a small step, but it's a big one. I actually feel motivated and excited about painting again.

On a related note, I discovered I really, really need to clean my contacts.

I'm going to go with the "take what you get when you get it" school of thought and be happy I'm feeling good about painting again, even if it's only one base-coating one model. Longest journey, first step and all that.

Wish me luck, brothers!
