Revamping my Thinking

Southwestern Joy 36x36 acrylic $2900You know I can get stuck  in an old way but I see unless I revamp my thinking,  I won’t be going anywhere meaningful.   Taking time to do the quiet time needed is more difficult than I thought.  I started  to go one way like this morning but I ended up cleaning out my art drawers which needed attention then I went to 2 exercise classes this morning lunch then went to the store.  How did that happen and here it is 2:00 already?   I tried to do that yesterday too.  I got myself sidetracked by investigating a studio opportunity, lunch with an art friend, which I always love, then husband asked to go to the cigar place to hang out so I thought I’d go someplace quiet and I ended up having a glass of wine and just enjoying that.  I guess it depends on how I want my journey to be.  I can either get intense and worry or know that I’m living the best life I know how at this moment. 

Okay okay, you think I’m a procastinator but the will is to be aware and ramping up my thinking is part of that.


My Fire is Ramping up

Joyfilled Thoughts III 12x12 acrylic $500

Since I’ve been recovering, my fire has been low. But feeling a whole lot better and because the end of summer is near, my fire has been ramping up.  I had wondered where it had gone.  I had been painting some and refining an old series that I had not really shown anywhere and still working on.  I’ll be posting those when I finish up the series.  It’s amazing to me how our mind works.  I needed the down time mentally, spiritually emotionally and physically to get renewed.  We all do.  What do you do to renew and to refresh?

I now am looking for a new studio that is much bigger because I have a painting that is five feet by seven feet that i can’t work on at home.  I’m excited all over again. looking forward to new ideas, new goals and my fire is ramping up.
