This is my studio a few days ago, in the early morning hours, finishing up a batch of ornaments for the upcoming Holiday season.
When I paint, I do a lot of thinking. Sometimes it's about the new design I may be working on. If it's a custom order, I often think about the recipient and the memories that will be associated with the Artwork I am creating.
2012 was a strange mixture of personal struggles and blessings going on. My little Art Business was growing, doing quite well, but I was barely keeping up and couldn't really enjoy what was happening
I pay attention better when I feel overwhelm taking over and actually pause and regroup. I am learning acceptance to the reality of what is possible in any 24 hr. period.
I've learned how to reach out and connect in a way I was unable to in my past, which has meant that I'm learning how to ask for help and taking the hands that are offered.
