Endings and Beginnings
This was the last completed painting of 2015. In all honesty I've been so busy at the end of this year and with a show that opens January 14th it feels as if my life is just flowing continuously from one year to the next. Typically I feel like things are completed and new projects begin as one year ends and a new one starts. I am not feeling that marked delineation this year. I've had to force myself to take a breath and reflect and honestly I'm not ready to set new goals and take inventory. I still feel very much in the middle of something, or many things.
I am happy with the direction(s) my work is taking. I am just at the beginning of a few series and I am excited to see where they go and what they become. I am challenged with how to give each of the series I am involved with a focus. I guess if there is really any new year changes I am contemplating it's how to schedule my week more effectively. As a creative person I struggle with this, I like to be able to be spontaneous and go with what I am feeling drawn towards at the moment. I am going to give it a go though and see how effective it may be.
So, here I go quietly into 2016 and I'm okay with that.
Happy New Year!!
