So here I am....
I have every intention on posting, but find it hard lately to settle on what to write. I have so much going on in this brain of mine that it is hard to choose just what to talk about.( A very large clue that I haven't been posting enough.) Less than two weeks and the kids are back in school. Mixed emotions. Love them to pieces, yet longing for some art time.... solitude, sanctuary.... meditation what have you. I have been doing so much with the kiddos and helping the art gallery in between... oof. Really, OOoooooof. I kinda want to scream right now. That sounds horrible doesn't it? Well, sorry but I am going to burst soon. I guess that doesn't really sound mixed, pretty sure I am ready for them to go back. Does that make me a bad mom? I used to think so.... back in the day before kids, and I would hear a mom say the same exact thing I just did. I always wanted children, especially knowing how difficult it would be for me to have them.... so I couldn't imagine being worn out or needing time for me... that always sounded so selfish. But of course, I used to have all the time , the energy , the solitude and inspiration in the world. I guess, you don't understand the need for it until you don't have easy access to it. Must fall in line with that old saying... 'you want what you can't have'. Well, I want both... mom and artist.. too much to ask? Hmmm..... anyways... I drift....
The gallery I am a part of, Gallery 4, Ltd., is having a 35year Anniversary celebration. Getting ads, invites, updates and trying to redecorate/update the gallery. It will be lovely....
So in honor of this celebration... we all decided to bring in new work.
Hence, the blank canvas.
I have been walking past my blank canvas for about 2 weeks. I can't focus. I decided I would do a larger canvas for such a special occasion. It sits there like a neon sign flashing..
"Sooo .... you going to paint me or what?!?"
(if neon could sound sarcastic, it would here)
So please send me some inspiration! I need some help here. I am in a funk. Thanks loves. Just wish I could have you all over for a cup of tea!!! xo
