Jewelry/Beach? Not Today.
January 31, 2013 § Leave a comment
Woke up to several emails that were art related and I spent the day behind the laptop taking care of said emails. I had several things to do as far as tying up some loose ends with the jewelry, but the reality is that my art is still a living and breathing business. 20+ years of painting means that something is always happening on that front.
I have 2 portraits in my studio right now. One is becoming extraordinarily difficult and one is fairly easy, but time consuming. Both take me away from jewelry, but right now I have to learn balance- a give and take of sorts. I’m good at multitasking, it is just that I prefer full concentration.
I was also distracted today, by the thought of being somewhere else, somewhere on a beach. At first I thought this idea was just a random thought, but then I realized that a beach is the only place I could go to really shut out all the multitasking. I want to remember what it was like before I was inundated with email, texts, constant social updates, website updates, stupid tv and tedious housework. I guess I need an excuse to excuse myself. I need a beach, or at least a plan to get to a beach soon. Until then, I will just stare at this photo from 2 years ago.
