Currently I’m telling myself to slow down as I rush around taking kids to appointments and commitments, helping organize and attend art events, get work ready to sell and continue to work on my goal of 100 pieces of art. (I think I am in the ballpark of 75 now!) Tuesday night amidst a Menard’s run, my husband and I attempted to take some much needed down time; while he is also busy cultivating the expansion of his business. Hopefully we will get some tonight, as well. Drive time seems to give us the best opportunity to discuss current life events and work out future plans.
I recently discovered a wonderful training resource for artists to help them grow emotionally, and although I’ve been following along with others’ creations, I’ve yet to finish any of the creative lessons to completion. (See paragraph above) It certainly has set my mind in motion as to a direction that I wish to pursue for the studio space. (HINT: it will involve mixed media and creating art from memorabilia-good, bad or otherwise!) My desire to help others as they deal with grief and raw emotion in a positive way, I believe is getting a foothold. Each time I give myself quiet reflective time, the vision becomes more clear of what it is I need to do.
I continue to pursue avenues for selling my original art and getting my work out into this great big world. It is taking up more time currently than I have time for, lol. All good things come to those who wait, they say. Slowly these opportunities are coming at me, now I need to navigate which are the best choices for audience and personal lifestyle!!
This brings me to an update on the studio situation. It continues to be a project that is getting very little of my current time. I am fixated on an opening date of Spring 2019! I’ll be more diligent about posting updates between this blogsite and my Facebook page, TJF ART studio. Live updates, and short studio time videos are happening more often; I’m just figuring out how to use all of this social media most effectively!
I look forward to being at the “Ladies Day” event at the Edge Pub and Eatery on November 17th from 11-4 with some new paintings and prints of some of my popular ones!
Thanks for stopping by and
Happy fall, y’all!!!
