Well, I am pretty sure I have done it again. When I should have said no...I didn't. Now here I sit awake a 2:30 A.M. overwhelmed and wishing I hadn't taken on the 50/50 art show while trying to do a painting class at the Academy. As I began reviewing the requirements for the class yesterday... I am seeing 6 to 10 hours of painting assignments plus written work and photos that are needed. Oh, yes there is also that full time teaching job. AM I NUTS! I did paint yesterday, and did 3 hours on a figurative study for the Academy. I need to take this one day at a time. I will not drop the class it costs over $2,000. per class. If I don't do or finish the 50/50 show...well in a hundred thousand years who will really care. I guess the same goes for the painting class but it costs so much that I can not stop now.When I can not sleep at night...I am pretty sure I have made a mistake.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
