So, as you can see, it looks like I love seeing myself in print, but well actually, what I really is what I do and the fact that others seem to love it as well. Now, to get off topic, I was chatting to an amazing artist who works at the Maker and is full time in her arts practice: Janine Morris (Second Sister - check out her blog).
I am catching her pearls of wisdom as I begin this creative journey of 'making art for a living'. The best pearl she gave me that day, was in regards to time management. Working out how much time you practically have in a week to 'make' and how many things can you make in that time. Well, I've been feeling like I'm "burning the candle at both ends" because I am trying to squeeze in as much art as possible whilst being an acceptable wife and mother. Anyway, to cut this story short, I am learning to put boundaries on how many art opportunities I take on - and keep my art in a box so I don't let it take over all other parts of my life! Thanks Janine for helping me to be a wise, sane, responsible and practical artist. Its certainly a journey - and I'm not there yet! Oh well, we're students of life; we learn as we go. And (I'm choosing to) enjoy the process.
