…something has to give. My mother used to say that she “didn’t have one single chink of space left in her brain to fit another thing in“. Over the past few weeks I have been able to relate to that, though – for me – it has been “not a single chink of time left to fit another thing in”.
Up until the last couple of weeks I have been blogging every day for the past year. Not a shabby achievement and quite time consuming. Recently I have taken on yet another project (not art-related this time) and have found that something in my life has had to be shoved sideways…and the victim has been Canvassing My Friends…unfortunately. This effort to save my sanity seems to have worked and I am “coping”.
In a couple of weeks I finish my second job and will regain some “me time” back. My brain is full of paintings, including my latest collage effort, which is half finished on the easel. It doesn’t help that we are smack in the middle of winter and sitting my little studio is like sitting in a fridge!
Please dig in with me and I will start to claw my way back to normal before too long!
