Finding Calm A Little At A Time
These two 3″x7″ paintings on wood are available in my Etsy Store.
I did these two little paintings today in an attempt to get my creative juices flowing. I know, I KNOW … in fact, for the last decade I have lived by the mantra ‘inspiration finds us when we are working’ HOWEVER, I am struggling right now. I am not sure why, but I have been hit with ongoing anxiety attacks which are making me lethargic and unmotivated. Ahhh, it is such a double edged sword. The more anxious you feel, the less you feel like doing stuff to help your anxiety which causes even more anxiety. The cold is not helping. It makes me feel trapped and helpless. Onward I go, I am trying to paint for my upcoming auction and I am trying to find joy in painting. I am trying to lose myself in it. Perhaps I am trying too hard.
Wish me luck my lovely people and please send me your most calming energy ❤

My redhead returns. She always comes to me when I feel a little lost or am struggling with inspiration. She is a springboard for me. A way to keep creating, keep moving forward. It’s funny how looking back can help us move forward sometimes. It’s not good to look back for too long, never to dwell but sometimes it is what we need in order to repel ourselves forward.

This is my first painting of 2019. The cold doesn’t seem to bother her but let me tell you, it is cold in my studio. I am trying to be productive but it is slow going. I have set up my wall for my upcoming online Auction in March and I am working on my workshop video for PYHAS2019. There is no time to doddle! (Nothing like setting goals to put the fire under your butt, hey, maybe THAT will warm up my studio LOL.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a nice winter holiday and a lovely New Year celebration. Ours was very low key, which was fine with me. The best gift I got was that everyone stayed well for the entire break. BEST. PRESENT. EVER.
I look forward to our upcoming year together. It’s going to be filled with lots of new challenges, facing fear and doing it anyway and my biggest struggle, remembering to stay in the moment.
Wishing you love and health to you and all of your loved ones.
