"Trouble Counting Sheep" - An Expressionist Painting

"Trouble Counting Sheep"    4 x 5     Acrylic on Canvas Board

My insomnia started again a few nights ago and I'm really hoping this doesn't become a routine again. I was up until 3 the night before and then until 5am the next night, and I just really don't like these hours, especially with kids in the mix! But one positive I got from my weird sleep cycle is this little gem, which is very expressive of how I feel at 4 in the morning after trying to get tired for hours to no avail.

Last night was much better atleast, due to a quite awful cold that had me sleeping nearly all day and night, so at least today I'm back on track - yay for that! Hope this lasts!!! The sleep hours, not the cold mind you! Lol! Hope you all are having a fun and healthy day! =)

  1. Insomnia hits me quite a bit too (that and normally being a night owl). I love the painting!

    1. Thank you so much! Yup, I'm a total night owl too, which used to be great at times, especially if I had a deadline to meet and needed to be able to stay up all night, but it's gotten much more inconvenient after having had little ones. Still, those few nights that I now get where I get to both stay up and then sleep in super late are so treasured by me!

    1. Thank you! And I know - it seems so odd, but seriously most of the time painting is the only cure for insomnia for me as well!
