Open wings and take flight.
So its been a bit of a long few weeks. I am your typical have a full time and a part time job, single parent of 2 amazing girls all while trying to be a sucessful artist, phew! I have noticed I think less and less about art with the games and stress that come with office politics. Sooo, I made a big decision last week, I quit the part time job. It was very scary, because its that little bit extra that keeps us almost in the black 🙂
Its been a week now and wow, the feeling of relief, like a huge weight has been lifted, I think my hair is even returning to its natural colour instead of that odd silver stuff that just keeps appearing. I have laughed, spent some one on one time with the kids and didnt get distracted by stuff, I even felt like cleaning, yes I said cleaning. But, most of all I have wanted to paint, and write and just create. The ideas are flowing. I am even working on a logo for my daughter who is starting a website/blog for her new business. The Scenic Root. She makes the most wonderful miniature gardens which have appeared both on a local TV news channel and newspaper.
Right now I am working on some idea for T-shirts for Redbubble, and maybe some traditional art for DeviantArt.
I feel great…..
I am putting together a plan, I am giving myself one full year of really trying to see if I can make anything work. Also alotting a day to each item. So Mondays are now going to be my blog day, whether it be writing or just reading all the wonderful posts out there or commenting to help my fellow artists. Tuesday will be update sites, wednesday photography day etc. etc. Sunday will be my all day art day…….no interruptions please……artist at play 🙂
