... Since I last posted a journal entry. The passed year has been filled with all the new experiences that comes with becoming a parent, and I haven't had as much time or energy to pour into my paintings as I would have liked to. Anyhow, I'm now officially on parental leave, which seem to be even more time-consuming. I'm gonna try to discipline myself and find time to paint whenever I can.

I don't know how many of my watchers read these journals, but I'd like to know if any of you would like me to maybe update these more often and write about my process and thoughts in general? I'm also wondering if any of you are following me on instagram/facebook. I tend to post wip-pics there if anyone is interested.

Umm...heck yes, keep posting!  I gave birth to twins last year, though, so I completely understand how hard it is to carve out the time to work on your art (like I just realized it's been over a year since I even checked my messages here...)  But, do try. Your work is so inspiring!

Congratulations! :clap: I wish you all the best for you, your family and your new addition to it, may he/she have a healthy and joyous life.

As for the art part of your life I personally would love to read more about your thought and technical processes in creating a piece of artwork. I also follow your Fb account and I try to keep up to date with everything you post. Can't wait to see more of your ideas come to life in your works :)

Congratulations. It isn't easy having kids but one of the pluses is new inspiration and ideas. The problem is making the time to bring these new ideas to reality.

Yeah, I used have problems disciplining myself to be efficient through a whole day of painting, and not slack off or take too long breaks, but now I'm thankful for getting even just an hour to paint.

The same for me too, it's really dificult to save time for creating art when you are a parent. I has so much more time before.

Congratulations on becoming a parent :)

It's always fascinating to see the thoughts and processes other artists go through.
Whatever floats your boat man; if you feel like writing journals, there will always be those who read and appreciate them.
