Roller coaster of emotions!
Hi everyone... Ive had a week....of ups and downs, lately I seem to be doing a lot of those.(my Daughter say's..."Mom you are one hot mess"!LOL!)
Before anything though ... a great big thank you to everyone who encourages me on this blog, it so helps me to keep going because if it wasn't for you I would have already quit!
I am a little emotional because , don't laugh, I found a job!!! Maybe I didn't really want one yet, although I have been complaining about not finding one, haha! Ah, women who understands them, not even me! I must of put in 1000 applications to places I really did want to work and a few to where I just put them in because ... it's a job..well I got the "It's a job", It's in retail, which I have never done before and I'm just not sure I'm going to like it!!!a little worried because I hate to quit jobs, especially once I know that they have been through so much effort to train me. so many doubts in my mind about this job, I have been really nervous about it and worse... my time will be cut short,But I really need this job... Hence I Will work for peanuts! I have had so much fun being out of work and making art and I can't wait till the fall because thats when all the art shows start and even though it's been tough selling online this summer, I know I'll do good during the art shows, I just hope I'll have the time with this new job!
Anyway on a "un-Whiny" note I have been experimenting with some new stuff, like always! (I am going to have to categorize my art because I go in so many different directions),( and by the way thanks on all your encouragement with that), I suppose as artists we all grow and transform, I realized that especially, by looking at other artists work and see so many transformations and growth including my favorite artist Vincent Van Gogh. So I'm OK with that. I love learning new stuff and trying it out, every week its something different, a couple of weeks ago... encaustics, this week its resin,don't have anything finished yet but I'll give you a peek of what I have been working at...Oh yeah and the Circus... These three paintings on wood are destined for resin, the top one "Will work for peanuts" is almost finished no resin...and the next two are not even finished...
