Time is a funny thing. Sometimes it goes quickly and sometimes very, very slowly. There's a friend I haven't seen for three months,......seems like an eternity. Another friend I just saw last week, and memories of things we did together twenty years ago seem like yesterday. Wonder why that is......Reflections.

And when you get really engrossed in what you're doing, for me it can be working on artwork or reading a really good book, in a just heartbeat, hours have past. I've read that's when the Right Brain is in control. I don't get to spend enough time there. It seems like "Life" encroaches on Right Brain Creativity. One of my goals this year is to spend more time doing my Right Brain activities — just for me. I guess that means I've got to get all the rest of this stuff under control, so I can go to my Right Brain place more often.

Being An Artist

I feel things pretty strongly. I've been told that I wear my heart on my sleeve. I've been told that it's useless for me to try to hide my feelings. I'm transparent. Sometimes I feel pretty damn transparent.......almost invisible, you might say. This image has at least 3 transparent layers. There are many layers of being an artist. Not all of them are very transparent, and many of them are very invisible. Many are rarely even seen.......

there's more to me than meets the eye.

too much
not enough
just right
just be
don't ask

I just wrote a bunch about how I'm feeling and how this piece of artwork relates to how I'm feeling....then I punched some button and it all disappeared. I hate it when that happens! I also hate when people don't do what they say they're going to. It seems that I get let down at some level almost every day. People don't show up when they say they will, they don't fulfill their comittments. I try to always do what I say I'm going to do. If something comes up, and I can't follow through, I"ll call them and let them know. Isn't that just common courtesy? That's certainly how I was taught.

When I write on here, it seems that I'm always complaining about something. I don't want it to be that way. I want to celebrate the good things too. I just don't have any to celebrate right now.........
