Here I am at the Sidney Fine Art Show with both of my accepted pieces on the same panel! I was given special permission to have this picture taken. I would have loved to take more pictures to give the flavour of the show, but it wasn't allowed. It was a wonderful evening and some of the pieces were so outstanding that I felt particularly honoured to be a part of the show.
The past 6 weeks or so have been extremely busy for me. Apart from my day job as a Display Artist, and my family and home commitments (including a small reno), there have been several wonderful art shows that I was fortunate enough to participate in. It's been lots of fun and a whirlwind of activity, but the long and short of it is that I haven't been able to paint as much as I'd like to! How to organize my time? I never have a problem with motivation, I have a problem with time, or at least not having enough of it. Hopefully in the upcoming weeks things will relax a bit and I'll be able to get back in the groove. I try to paint two to three evenings a week and at least one full day on the weekend. How about you? Do you have trouble finding the balance between all the various commitments in your life and getting in your precious painting time? If anyone has any great tips on how to manage their painting schedule, I'd love to hear them. In the meantime I'm going to concentrate on getting back to the easel, which is something that I love and that I enjoy sharing with all of you.
