As promised I have been gentle with myself. I’ve slept when I needed to and haven’t been very active due to not feeling 100% and the cold. Luckily I am starting to feel a lot better. Allowing the downtime of my mind, however, didn’t slow things down. It’s been kind of fun to watch how when I stop forcing the flow, the flow is still there pointing me in the right direction.
I have put all plan making aside and just decided to paint for a bit. I am currently working on a commission piece I hope to finish in the next week. I also have lots of ideas for new pieces. I began to construct an office/studio space in my basement with lots of light and lots of room for creativity. I currently have my studio outside of my home too, but it’s nice to just go downstairs and paint when my son is sleeping.
As a result of just relaxing, I was approached three times this week with hanging shows. All very exciting opportunities and I’ll be posting more about them in the very near future. There are a lot of things sizzling and I will announce them as they solidify. Turns out, just relaxing and taking care of myself first is also working for my art business. I should keep doing that.
