Random train of thoughts...
Art is not happening as much as I would like.
My kids are little and need so much of my time that I'm really trying to focus on giving that to them. Does the art part of me hurt sometimes? Yes, she is neglected but she know too that time is too short, but life is very long. Time will come.
When I do get time it is too short, and often interrupted. I'm not the person who can paint with their kids in the room without a disaster happening-all the other people out there that can do it, give me all your best tips. Also I focus best when I'm completely alone, and, well, as a mom, you know how often that happens. Maybe I should set up a table in the bathroom since that seems to be the only time I get to myself!
On that note, summer has been amazing. We have been busy to the point of total exhaustion but we have had such a great summer and I will never regret all the mini adventures we have gone on as a family. Camping, hiking, paddle boarding, playing in the mud, in the rain, at the lake, with friends, with family - it has all been worth it and the sacrifice to not make art so I could go do those things, I would do it over again.
Why am I telling you this? Because there really is a time and season for everything. I'm slowing down my art practice more than I would like to - again. So if I seem a bit distant, I am.
I'll always be back at some point.
Oh Hey! it's me, Amy
These are stories about my art, experiences I've had in my career, and some other fun stuff too. I will probably overshare, I can't help it when I'm writing. Get cozy, these are great rainy day reads!
