It has been way too long...I have been busy with painting..and stupid worrying...I wonder sometimes if this is just a bad habit-Its like my default button goes right to the anxiety. And it really doesn't matter if I am not in the middle of a problem-I will find one to fret about. So I decided to take time off from this pattern, and boy is it hard. Yesterday went great until about 5 when it felt like a steamroller drove over my body and I took a two hour nap!!!!! Today I worked on this and I was happy and energized.......she isn't finished yet but sometimes looking at a painting this way gives me some distance to really LOOK. Maybe that iis what I need in my life..if I could step away and really look I bet I would be overwhelmed at the wealth I would find.

I envision these hanging like this on a wall in a show that is coming up-I love them they are 4x6 charcoal and gold acrylic paint and some are gold leafed. It has been a great learning and inspiring period working on something kind of out of my field-and finding my skills adapt and expand accordingly. I have been working on wood and cardboard and gesso surfaces and each one gives me new life to deal with-they wood has been amazing for skin and depth-and may I add awfully cheap-and it all circles back to my souls theme, which inspires all my work.

This summer has been, I think the most creative and worryless (is that a word? It is now) that i have ever had with my art.
