Thank goodness. I've been teaching full time, so I still don't have a whole lot of painting time, but I'm starting to get a better handle on my personal life so that I can fit in a day of art here and there. It is very, very freeing to not be doing art-for-money. There is no pressure to finish a painting that isn't making me happy, there're no deadlines, and, best of all, I can paint whatever I feel like painting. My ideas don't have to be marketable or meet some client's requirements. If I feel like spending a day doing a study of a pretty girl's head, I can do it!

I'm back in school, working towards my teaching licence and a Masters in Special Education. Art has gone on the back-burner. I really burnt out for a while, and didn't even sketch for several months. I've been slowly getting back to it, but have been doing more doodles and simple drawings than larger, commercial work. As always, I have more ideas than I have time to paint... but, the time has come for me to go back to working full time. I am very fortunate to have gotten seven years off to make a real "go" at working for myself, now it's time for a steady, regular paycheck again.
