Started a part time job around Thanksgiving which has consumed my life. Haven't done any artwork since I started. Need to get back to creating. My studio is sitting there waiting for me. As I get older I have a harder and harder time balancing responsibilities and being creative. It's tough for me when I'm wiped out and my eyes are tired. I'm a goal setter so I have set a goal of March 1st. I put in for less days/hours of work starting on the 1st. I am hopeful that the creative juices will start flowing again after that. I have so many pieces/projects pent up inside me. And I have at least 2 dozen pieces in the works. I have a habit of starting a piece and while still working on one I start another before I lose the inspiration for the new one. Hence, the 2 dozen pieces in the works. I guess I have to make a goal of starting to finish pieces I have in the works. LOL.
Anyway..... it's back to making Art for me. I miss it. I feel empty without it.
I'm going to go sit in my studio and see what happens........... :)

Life really can change in an instant. This summer my daughter was in a horrible motorcycle accident. They were cut off and they went right into the side of the car. My daughter was on the back of the bike. I have absolutely no doubt that miracles do happen and that there are guardian angels out there watching over us all. They survived but have a long road ahead of them.
So in an instant my life went from trying to find time for artwork to concentrating on helping my daughter walk again. No more complaining about anything from me, life is too short.
So here I sit with a pencil and a sketch pad for the first time in almost 2 months and I'm drawing a blank. I have a feeling you are going to be seeing a lot of artwork from me in the future that has to do with guardian angels. :)
Hug the ones you love every chance you get. Tell them you love them every chance you get.
Because your life really can change in an instant.
