I didn't mean for so much time to go by before a new post. I had big plans! My birthday passed and I was going to talk about all the things I've learned this year and then.....I'm not sure what happened? I do know that I've been gearing up for school to start for Little J so that I could get back to making art. Taking huge amounts of time off from creative work is not a good idea for me. I found myself fantasizing about all the projects I can start when I get my days back. And then, I get my days back and because I haven't been in the habit of making something everyday, the panic sets in and I start to feel like a fraud. The Open Studios in Beacon are happening at the end of the month. I've been so looking forward to it. I'm feeling pretty stuck right now and not sure what direction to go in. It doesn't help that I have exactly 38 and a half hours in which to make a bunch of pieces. So, in an attempt to clear my mind and just move forward, here's a post.
Little J has been missing our pets lately and feels compelled to touch every animal we see. This is Buddy from lawrence farms. He's still pretty young. Maybe 2 years old?
