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!
