This last year and a half really knocked me out of my art game. Sometimes life gets richer and more complicated in good ways, but it doesn't mean they're not challenging too. I'm trying to adapt to a life where a lot of the time I used to have is being parceled out differently. There's also the emotional ups and downs of having a new baby... again! (For anyone who has been following me for a while... bless your patience.... that's three now). All that to say, art took a backseat and parenting and house ownership and gardening filled up it's space.
I'm trying to push myself a little extra hard to start making art again. I have to think about projects differently and organize my time (which is not and never has been my strong suit) It's not an easy thing to get through any task without needing to stop several times for this or that. Of course, now that I'm finally making time to draw again there are huge gopher holes in my yard. Really?
So I suppose I just wanted to say, Hello! and Gosh hasn't this year been weird? and I can't wait to share with you when I can. Life is always changing and going up and down and sometimes it just veers way into left field. I love the way I've been blessed and miss things I used to take for granted at the same time. I'm hopeful I'm getting better at things, but most of the time it doesn't feel like that at all.
But before I spend too much of that precious time on this "quick" journal entry I'm going to wrap things up and move on to the next thing. And if you're interested, I'm also posting my artwork on an Instagram account called atimetodraw. I'll probably post more unfinished work there, so look me up!
