A creative day - or not

Let's just see how this goes - my first post! Been meaning to do this ever since another member suggested it a few weeks ago on an advice question I wrote called 'sex and creativity'. That seemed a popular post, so hopefully someone may read this and remember it.

Yesterday was spent on a four-hour marathon oil painting session. It's a great big moody cloudscape based on a musical setting of 'Et lux perpetua luceat eis' which translates (it says here in the booklet, I'm not THAT clever) as 'And may perpetual light shine upon them'. It's based on a pic I took last week, and shows the moon lighting up huge clouds in the night sky. Sort of threatening, but comforting, like the Philip Larkin poem that begins 'Groping back to bed after a piss'. Google it, it'll turn up!
I was up early today completing a part I needed to sleep on. Now I've to leave it for a few days before the next layer. In the meantime, I've started another so as not to waste time. This is another night painting, showing a luminous cornfield and a ruin based on a musical setting of Traherne. The drawings are done and the undercoat is on, ready to start the hard work this afternoon . . .
At least I would have started . . . but for a long and sexy session on mnn with another AdultFriendFinder member! It's my own fault, I went online to grab some porn for some gratification and that was it - cock wins.
The whole point of my 'sex and creativity' question was to see if anyone truly agreed with me. I don't think the question was right unfortunately. But this is the nature of it - I have to take regular breaks from creative work because it makes me so stimulated! Now, I do have a day job. But at no point do I have to excuse myself for a quick jerk off in the toilet. That's because I have nothing but ordinary behavior in an ordinary job. But this creative, poetic, intensely personal work gets my libido up - and it's a struggle to keep at it. Is this a complaint? No - because I had a great time on msn (thanks babe)!
You look at portraits of all the great artistic geniuses (not that I lay any claim to that title). You can bet they spent fifty percent of their time creating the great cornerstones of our culture, and the rest bringing themselves off.

From personal experience, I know your artistic talents do not just lie with your art! Looking forward to another stimulating (in every way) conversation with you. I still want that picture babe - you know which one I mean! xxx
