Thanks, PC.

My self-esteem is almost entirely tied to my work, not only to feeling that it's good, or progressing (or both-- which I rarely feel), but also that my concentration is good and I'm "into" it.

With still life, I have a lot of trouble getting into it. I know right now, I'm trying to learn the basics of painting in a way-- and with still life, a certain limited technical thing about creating volume and feeling in control of the paint. Today things aren't going well at all.

I know what you mean about doing other things to feel good, or not focusing exclusively on work, but that's so much more important to me than anything else. I wish I could find something I wanted to paint right now.

Sorry if I sound as if I"m feeling sorry for myself. I think I am, somewhat-- so I guess I should try some dbt things to try to break away from it. It's hard at this moment.
