For The Time Being......

I love this phrase.

Today and Yesterday 26" x 38" encaustic, 2009

I have been thinking about starting a blog since December and even came up with the name, For the Time Being. The blog was going to be a way to post new images from the studio "for the time being" until I came up with another way besides updating the website. But I didn't.
Instead I looked, researched and read tons of art blogs. There are so many good ones serving different purposes-the straight forward self promotion, the views on the workings of the art world, the artists internal struggles, the how to do and where to do, the interactive, the inspirational, the amateur and the professional, the curator and on and on. Please see side bar for some of my favorites.
Five months later I have a very long bookmarked blog list and no blog.Blog envy, blog fear, blog something.
Sometimes when I am in the studio I get this same feeling when I am working. I have to remind myself that I am not doing brain surgery or making bombs -just get in and do it.

So, for the time being I will start by adding new images from my studio and see where it goes.
