I have just made this album…and sold it right away which is ok but i like to have them a little with me.
My inspiration came back so let’s take the ride while is flowing! I’m debating as always with my sense of time flying and not knowing how to manage day to day life. One of my favorite artists Sally Jean retires for 6 months in her studio warning her friends that she will be unreachable and it seems to work for her.
It would be a complicated thing to accomplish for me as i sense that i need to be present and available all time! Feeling guilty and restarting biting my nails when not responding to their needs when all i want to do is hiding in my studio and create. Know the feeling…assertiveness is definitely awckard to me but is what life defies me to do almost every day. How i love to be in my studio, time stands still, i feel creative, alive, whole. There’s a inside struggle in my need for others and my urgent need to remain alone. Advises are most welcome….

Alex! I love this – so your style.
Thanks for your comment on facebook…. I am selling my house and then who knows?? So Artfest might be in my future. Would love to go – there look to be a lot of good classes. What are you taking?
I absolutely adore your book!!!! Where do you find all the stuff you use? Is it from markets? Vintage or antique-store? From your attic? You make magic, Alex!
Your album is soooo Lovely!! I can understand why you wanted to treasure it awhile before sending it on its way to a new home!
I know what you mean about not being accessible. Our friends and sometimes relatives do not understand the flow that takes place in the mind and heart of an artist. When things are flowing (and they usually do when left to our own creativity and inner thought processes)we have to remain in that flow. If we are interupted…we somtimes cannot get back to that Beautiful Rhythm.
It is ok to be more assertive!! If you were at a job, and your boss said you could not accept calls or visits from friends during work hours there would be no problem…So pretend your creative time is your job for yourself…you cannot accept phone calls or visits until your me time job is finished!! You set your own hours!! Great idea Huh!! Hugs Patti
This is gorgeous. It would be hard to let go of so quickly!
