Passions of an Odd Chick

Sunday, December 6, 2015

It's hard to believe that I started this blog so long ago just wanting to find one or two other souls that we're passionate about art and others who were learning to draw and paint . Now, almost 10 years later, I rarely have time to post because now I have my own gallery, teach 6 different children how to draw, and teach 4-5 paint and wine classes to those who just want to paint for fun. I'm also still painting my own originals, making prints, making cards and all the paperwork!

I also contribute to community projects, my church, my friend's birthdays, etc.- all those things that fit into my over all goals and things I value.

And trying hard not to neglect my loved ones and myself.

Admittedly, it's a lot to keep up with and sometimes I juggle better than others. Sometimes, I even miss the quiet times at home just painting, blogging and working on the farm, cooking for my Sweet Farmer.

But, I feel like I'm right where I'm suppose to be.

I'm going to keep learning, keep painting, and keep loving. It seems to be working for me.
I have opened a gallery. I am teaching and sharing art. I am selling art. But I haven't been able to get a  decent web-site up or keep up with my blog. It is hard to juggle all the wonderful things that make up a working artist's life.
I'm excited that in January I will be taking some graphic design classes out at our local university. Learning new things is one of my favorite things, next to travel.
Hopefully, I will get back in the groove. If you're still here listening, thank you for your very long patience.
