That’s what Friday and Saturday were. Although I still can’t quite reveal what I’m up to, I can say that shortly after my “I have exciting news” post, things took an unexpected detour. You know that kind of moment where you think to yourself, “Dang, I shouldn’t have said anything, I’ve jinxed myself!”
So while things haven’t completely folded, it did require me to create a bunch of new stuff and in two days, I created 16 new pieces. That, folks, is a record by far. I have paint in my hair, glue stuck to my skin and dark circles under my eyes.
I feel like I could vomit from the brain I’ve had such a steep learning curve in such a short amount of time: tons of reading, research, consultation and understanding of legal matters
Because of the tight timeline I’m on, everything else has gone by the wayside – it’s an absolute war zone in our home and the pics included in this post show how my paintapalooza has extended to all parts of the house (and the pics are a bit fuzzy as I took with my phone because I couldn’t find my camera under the piles of paper, paint, canvas and assorted art products!). David has been great at offering me support, yet leaving me alone to create like a madwoman. Wine and chocolates are my companions as of late.
And if things completely unfold and this opportunity goes away, at the very least:
- I have gained incredible knowledge that will suit me well as an artist going forward
- I have learned to push beyond my creative boundaries and create utilizing new styles/techniques
- I have lots of new material for my shop!
Gotta look at the silver lining, right? Gratitude at all levels.
Thanks for following along ;)
