WE Lab Report: Disconnect

a slow awakening, 23.5 x 26 in, milk paint + encaustic on reclaimed wood
Last week, I attempted to reduce my time spent online as a way of disconnecting and living a slower paced life. While I didn't hit my mark for social media, I did come close. In fact I'll consider it a success. Because even though I have been sick this whole last week - I got another painting done and delivered to the gallery. This is in part due to shutting the computer and leaving it in the house so I could go out to the studio and paint. No need for a full lab report, but just know this - if social media is sucking up your time, limiting it is refreshing and quite enjoyable. Getting on only once or twice a day actually makes it better than checking it every half hour.
