I have been posting paintings not really knowing the story . I have been up since four this morning. I think I've got it. Just like everyone else I am busy . My studio practice, marketing and followup, teaching, waitressing, family life and on and
on...........The Balancing Act.
The Balancing Act 24 x24 encaustic
At the end of the summer I began playing around with oil paint again and it felt so liberating.This was the first oil painting I had done in a few years. It was an experiment with new tools, new paint, new attitude. It was scary and taking a leap of faith.

Not two weeks later, after a bit of a back story, I literally walked out of my job that I have had for 14 years. Although it was probably time for me to retire my waitress shoes, walking out before Saturday night service was not the way I had pictured my send off. It was completely out of character, slightly dramatic and kind of like a bad breakup. It was scary and taking a leap of faith.

Does art follow life or does life follow art?
It has been an interesting few months. Possible opportunities to teach 2d design and drawing has me looking at books, lessons plans, exercises, and artists. I bought a new sketchbook and worked in it yesterday while I was in the studio. I have to practice what I preach right? I will be brushing up on perspective soon. It is scary and I am taking a leap of faith.
That's my story for now.
