It feels good to be back

I’ve been traveling for 8 months and now I’m finally back! I have to say, the lack of schedules and rushing has me a little overwhelmed. Suddenly I have time to relax and breathe and paint…and I don’t know where to start.

My first week filled quickly with meetings. I am doing an art lesson through the JCDS Emerging Artist Program tomorrow. I have had my eye on this organization for a while, but haven’t been able to do anything with them. I was honored when I was asked last week to teach some lessons.

I also booked another art show for December – February. It’s in an engineering firm that I think my work will show well in. I hope to get some new work done in the very near future to exhibit in this space.

My art supplies are stocked, my new easel is calling my name, and I have an entire day set aside on Thursday to work in the gallery without interruptions. It feels good to be back.



About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
