A lot has happened in my life in the past few weeks (physically and emotionally) and instead of going into a long sermon I'll try to summarize.
1. My lease was up at The Art Gallery where I sold my art so I made the hard decision to pull my stuff out. It has become a lot more emotional for me than I thought. I used to define myself as an artist and I guess I still am but it seems like I have no direction now.
2. I was in a car accident on November 1st. I am still bruised and very sore but I'll survive. It was the other person's fault and thank God I didn't have my kids in the car with me. I won't post pictures because it still gives me the chills to look at them.
I forced myself to get back into my art room last night and I think slowly my creative energy may be coming back but I probably won't be posting for another few weeks.
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
