Thought For The Day:
Again I have been feeling like there is not enought time in the day. Of course it could be my fault. Most days I make great strides to get done what I need to. It's the days when I don't write out a list that are the worst. It's like time just is sucked away.

So now that I have decided that I am going to take much of this summer to get my portfolio together so that I can start applying to some artist residencies (as soon as late fall), I have been avoiding my studio. I like that I have a place to call a studio, but if I have to be honest, it's not my favorite place. Let me clarify a bit.

I just started reading this book called "Imagine" by Jonah Lehrer. My dear sister-friend Trish blessed me with it after I read it a bit while we chatted at B&N, and I complained that I wanted to purchase the book, but needed to wait until it came out in paperback. I am not that far into the book, but the sleeve said something that caught my attention. It explained that the color blue is the best color to ignite creativity. I thought, "Hmm...that is why I feel so comfortable in my room." I made the switch from off white to blue about 3 years ago while redesigning my room. I wasn't so sure why I was compelled to choose blue because the purple and pink family is what I am normally drawn to. Perhaps God knew that I would need all the help I could get to always be fresh creativly. 

I say all that to say that I am happier in my room creating that I am in my studio. There is something comforting in knowing that I can work and take a nap in the same area. My room is warm, and my studio...well, kind of cold. It is in my basement with little natural light and there is more than just my studio there. The other side serves as a storage area. This all may seem like complaining, but please understand my plight. I am extremely grateful for the studio area that I have...don't get me wrong. I could be working with nothing. I have attempted to make what I have a home, but it is no longer working in the manner in which is favorable for my work or my creative process. 

My mission now is to work through. I need to get these pieces done, and I have lots of other things on the horizon. All of which cannot be held back by me not wanting to work in my studio. I will tie up my bootstraps and get to work...regardless of how I feel! 

With that being said, you all will be seeing some completed painting real soon. I apologize beforehand because none of these paintings will be on sale as of yet. 

Keep it easy folks! Until next post...

Pearls of Wisdom:
I'm just happy to be working consistently.
