I took a part time job working at a home with elderly residents. I really enjoy the people. I love knowing that I can add a happy moment to a someones long day just by being myself. It is the schedule that is getting to me though. I only work at 'the home' roughly 3 days a week, but still, being mom, secretary, taxi driver, cook etc... gets to be just a tad too much with trying to paint and blog etc...on top. Plus, I am anxiously wanting to get some painting projects finished so I can move on to the next.
The results are in, I am thinking it is time to move on, and take the best parts with. I need to focus on what needs to be done, prioritize without drowning. As part of my Minnesota Initiative Arts Grant this year I need to work on roughly 20 new paintings for a solo show as well as prepare for the Powderhorn Art Fair in August..
I am currently working on some commission pieces. I thought I would put a few of pieces up for auction to reassure myself that life will be ok without a 'regular' paycheck. Repose tells my story
