Change is good unless…

Hello friends, it’s been a while! I’ve decided to change things up a bit. It’s just not practical to write a blog every week or so, like in the past. So I’m changing things up and posting when I have the time, because honestly – creating art takes precedence over blogging. Besides, with commissions and the summer months – there’s just too much going on right now.

Part of the reason for a change

First I was sick in April and May. Then in June I felt better and just overdid things way too soon. In the “down time” though, it became obvious that writing a blog and creating almost everyday was really stretching things too thin. So I made some executive decisions and decided to concentrate on my art and promoting, rather than writing about it. When I have something to share and the time to post I will, otherwise I may just send out the latest news on occasions.

So to catch up

Here’s some new works as well as some artworks that have sold:

As you can see, in spite of being sick, I still kept painting. Art has always been a refuge for me. And even though I didn’t create as much as I would have normally, it still came from a place of good intention and passion.

Here’s to filling your life with creativity and passion – after all, what else is there?

Be well, love often

    You have been busy and everything is so beautiful. I can’t even pick a favorite–though “Take Flight” is really speaking to me. Springtime in the Mountains because well, purple and a pun on my last nam. Yes, art is definitely therapeutic. I’ve been doing quite of doodle/drawing–every day, in fact. You’d be proud of me. 🙂 No more painting though. I cleaned up my home office and couldn’t find the watercolor pencils, so I probably did give them away.

      Oh Chandra, am so happy to hear that you are creating – EVERY DAY!!!! Yeah, that put a smile on my face. I want to send these watercolor pencils to you, text me 7076948504 or send me an email with your address. Seriously, want to see these wc pencils used!

      1. Chandra Lynn

        Perfect! I’ll send you a text message or maybe even a DM on IG.

    Happy to hear you are on the mend and that summer has been so creatively prolific for you. It’s so important to keep taking care of ourselves and I hope you continue to prioritize this! Really digging “Take Flight” but I’m super excited about that large landscape/seascape you’re working at!

      Hello there, yes -am slowly getting better these days. Promise I WILL do better at prioritizing my health – just stretched too thin these days. Seems to be my world – feast or famine…When it slows down again I’m looking to do panchakarma again so I can detox and really get a handle on things… Till then I just BREATHE

    I know that feeling of stretching yourself too thin. I often ponder about cut down on the blogging – and I have, but probably not as much as I should. I love you latest work. Keep up, stay creative!

      Hi Otto, so GREAT to hear from you, its been awhile! While I miss seeing everyone’s work and keeping in touch – it’s difficult to blog and create, plus packaging art, hanging shows, etc. I do jot down ideas for blog posts that might help others – one of these days perhaps I’ll sit my ass down and write one, right now though – too busy. I need to stop by and see what kind of interesting ness you’re up to – no one captures a moment and a feeling like you. Sending you all the best!

    I so agree with you, although blogging for me is another space to also be creative for me, it takes time away from writing that pays! I’ve brought myself back to the blogosphere for a September article and some happy chats with blogger friends. Happy to hear you’ve completely recovered. And I will see you around oftener on IG!

      Thanks for stopping by – always good to hear from you Atreyee – your last article was beautiful. Looking forward to seeing you more on IG – as I’m too busy to blog these days!

    Glad you are feeling better Deb. I personally use a blog as part of the creative process. Firstly as a way of evaluating work – another angle to view it. Also, I space my blogs out, every 3 days, and it is an incentive to get things done which otherwise might get left. And finally I keep the blogs short

      Hi, so glad you’ve found a way to incorporate blogging into your creative process! All the best!
