Art & Fear


I feel the heat from the impending double art shows. I can't believe the first time I try and show my work for several years, I end up with two shows in the same month.

Some would call that crazy.

I call it extra crazy because I'm such a slow and methodic painter.

Two art shows at the same time means two entire bodies of work that need to be completed ASAP. Working over Christmas was out because so many other things need to get done and of course being a mom zaps tons of time. Now I'm trying to catch up which means painting 24/7.

Here's a page from my sketchbook which contains my scribbling thought processes in creating my final paintings.


When I'm not wringing my hands and pacing for fear of not meeting my deadlines, I'll be posting more pages.

You can do it. I wish I could come see your art in person - but I'm a bit far away. I hope it all goes well.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will have time to make a site for my artwork so everyone can see it.

A lot of work for you, sure.
I think you'll make it. The two art shows will be ├╝ber-cool.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.
