I was in and out of studio mode Saturday and Sunday, as weekends go. It is upon waking up this morning that I realize how much I need a grounding practice. When I am painting that is it. When I am working on this website, that is it, but sometimes...often, it is so easy to get caught up in the rush, the busyness, and details of it all as an aspect of a busy life. This project needs to be the slow unfolding that it is right now. There's no point rushing to be somewhere. That just takes the joy out of everything.
I found some new direction with my art work that I had not seen coming at all,
and that I realize was a product of its time. It would not have been so last week when I preconceived what type of work I would develop for my online store front, but when I began to paint this weekend there was something I needed to respond to. It seems as though three things are coming together into one. It is such a departure for me, and I am looking forward to the possibility of it, and all possibilities. The experience was that of going into creativity without any preconceived ideas holding me back, and this clarity has come from taking time to acknowledge what is happening throughout the process.
Speaking of "other work," it is time to get ready now. Wishing everyone a day and week of possibilities.
