I'm Back

Okay, I'm back.  Sorry for the long hiatus .  I have so many thoughts running through my head right now.  I'm sure only a few will make it to the page.  I have decided to get back in gear and produce work that is my own.  This is the first painting I have done for me, just me.  Not for a professor, nor a customer or even a friend.  This is from my soul.  I've realized, if I want people to appreciate my work, I need to produce.  End of story.  So, here is a start.  A baby step.
I've realized over and over again that I need deadlines to get things done.  (I think this is common with artists, no?)  I am going to give myself small deadlines such as entering a couple of works and the state fair and so on; so that I complete new work.  I also want to continue encouraging you with ideas to stimulate creativity.  Stay tuned for more frequent posts.  They will probably occur late at night or early morning - when this mom of 4 finds the time!  Enjoy!
