Inspiration to paint

I wish I had painted this bag but I did not. My friend bought this last piece from a shop for SGD$50 although the original prize tag was for more than $100. There is no signature and the price probably indicates that it is done by a copy artist from the region. Anyway, I was so inspired by this painting that I took pictures of the bag telling my friend that I would paint this scene the next day. Then of course, the next day being a Monday, I was again caught up with so many other things and when I did think about painting this scene, my mind began to question why I should copy paint. Thinking about what I should paint began to occupy my mind for the next day or so but I really should just stop thinking and just take out my canvas and paints and PAINT! But then I procrastinate as in the back of my mind I knew I would not have the luxury of painting non-stop for days till the painting is finished. Whatever it is, I am using this bag as the inspiration. I can do it, just need to START. Okay, I will really try to paint something within the next 48 hours.
