navel gazing

What a bad blogger I am - I can't believe that it's been a month since my last post.  After returning from our holiday, which was bliss - long days of doing nothing, sitting on the beach and contemplating the gift of silence - things have been pretty hectic. I do love the little tricks and contradictions life throws at us.

I received an order to paint 15 origianl pictures on immediate return from the beach.  Which I managed to do in two weeks - phew it really felt like a job by the end.  I remember reading a quote by a famous artist once, who said art is often like a job, sometimes you have to just plug at it even when you don't feel in the mood. 

Before we went on holiday I applied to do two shows in September, one is a three day show and the other a four day show.  They both happen at the same time.  Quess what, I got accepted to do both. Thank goodness I have two daughters who are willing to help me.  I've also been very lucky to find an amazing young lady to help me make up my pictures. 

I'm itching to redesign my blog and share all sorts of new ideas that I thought about when I was sitting at the beach, contemplating my navel.  Oh well, one day at a time I quess.
