- Okay – so where to start?
- Did I mention, I love what I do?
As I lie here in my bed, drinking my first cup of coffee, looking at Grandmother Mountain (Taos Mountain), I am contemplative about this undertaking I have chosen. This past week has been incredulous. I had written several goals for this year, and envisioned them, and the majority of them have already come to fruition. I wanted 3 more galleries – or should I say – non-traditional spaces to showcase and merchandise my artwork, and no sooner had I decided it, I had two. The third came as a delightful surprise in Eureka Springs, Arkansas in a stunning showcased home store owned by two beautiful men (more on them later)! I wanted to share with people some of my beliefs on spirituality – and had an interview this week – www.scriptingforsuccess.com/interviews/ – Check that off my list! And, although not a conscious goal, I had been meditating – a lot – asking Creator/Spirit, to show me what I was to “do” to best serve. Viola’ – I have realized that I AM an artist, and that being an artist is so much more important that I thought it was. As artists we bring in energy – gifts from “above” to share with all. We allow collectors or patrons to get in touch with a past memory – that aids them in getting in touch with their emotions, their inner-child. No longer do I believe that what I do is fluff – it is essential to the growth of the world. I love what I do.
Today is the Dueling Paintbrushes event at Act 1 Gallery – a kick-off for my Thirty in 30 – a great, fun performance that I am doing with Peggy McGivern – but, is that really the first painting that I want to do for my undertaking – or do I want todo something less public – more reflective? With the mood that I am in – I think it needs to be done alone…………
And so, I am back, the ADD artist- went to make more coffee (first cup was cold), and did a small painting – Wee Ones #43 – (shiny objects – or as the t-shirt my family got for me one year that says “they say I’m ADD. They don’t know what they’re talking about….Oh Look, A Chicken!!”). Second cup of coffee is cold. First painting of Thirty in 30 is done. Still in my pajamas. Did I mention, I love what I do.
Blessings to all,
