Colors of fall

Ahhh…don’t you just love fall?  I’m posting just a few photos of some of the vibrant local colors.  I know…we all have pretty fall photos.  I’m posting these anyway.

Things have been a bit of a struggle lately.  I am really having a hard time not having a “studio”.  I feel really disjointed.  My stuff, while organized into bins, feels scattered.  I have so little time alone to do any work…I’m not so good at working with an audience.  I feel inhibited.  I’m often not happy with what I’m doing, and I feel so self conscious when someone looks over my shoulder, or remarks on my project.  I’m a serious introvert, so this kind of work environment is really stressful.  I know…stop whining!  I’m embarking on a new phase of life!  Still, it feels like I am waiting for some kind of sports injury to heal before I can actually get into the game.

I also know that if I was Picasso, not having a permanent place to work probably wouldn’t obstruct my genius.  Unfortunately for me, I’m no Picasso.  My artistic endeavour is a tiny sapling, easily stunted by an unfavorable environment.   I wish that I had a kind gardener, to help me on my way.

I’ve started a mini art quilt.  It’s tiny.  It’s also not quite as exciting as I had envisioned it.  I’m going to try to keep at it, until I’m happier with it.  When I finish, I’ll post it!  Comments are always welcome…Happy Halloween!

Don’t be so hard on yourself, the creative process doesn’t happen overnight. It is often the hardships of the journey that make the destination so remarkably rewarding; be sure to try and enjoy the journey now and again and remember, it’s YOUR journey, not someone else’s and you don’t EVER have to work with CAD again if you don’t want. I just bet there’s a wee studio space out there somewhere just begging to be shared between two up and coming artists.
