An Exciting Revelation!!

How in the world did I left all of September go by without a single blog update...  How??
Honest...I get to my studio, almost daily, its the posting that never makes it out of my thoughts!!
I have had a revelation though, as it relates to my serious fear/frustration of painting on a canvas...
I have been beating myself up about not workin on canvas because somehow, I felt that once I started, I had to finish in the sitting...crazy I know, but that was just stuck in my head...Start today, finish with a bang...today!!!
I was druving myself nuts with "the pressure", then, it just dawned on me...I don't have to have all of the ideas ready and done in one sitting...kudos if I do...but a canvas can take weeks, right???
So, heres a start
Its a start, and it now sits on my easel to wait as I take some time to let it grow...and figure out what needs to happen next...sure is a lot less frustration that way...
It may completely change by the time Im done with it, but I'm totally ok with that...
Until next time,
Ophelia

What Matters Most...

Today, I needed a reminder.
Hello Blog Friends...I have to say, that back to school for me is always a giant adjustment.  No matter how much I prepare and plan, it always knocks me off my feet!
 
I needed a reminder today of what matters most...so, I made a list.  I realized as I started this page, that it has been quite some time since I have pulled out my trusty journal...., and although this page will proably get more added, today was a good start. 
I find that not only did I need a reminder of what matters most to me, but I also need the release of playing in my journal.  This year has already present challenges.  I find that at the end of the day, I am purely exhausted....like can't form a sentence exhausted!
I know that from this point forward, I will not focus on what is dragging me....but, more of the things that are here...on my list.
Until next time,
Ophelia
