I have been trying to keep my sanity in the meantime, and do things that relax me. I haven't had much success in this area, though I did manage to finish a new painting! Tomorrow I will be dropping it off, along with three others, to the Broadway Art Center (BAC) for their next gallery installation, 'Spirit of Independence'. And then I can cross "Drop paintings at BAC" off my to-do list. Whoo-hoo!! (Sometimes it's the little things that keep us going...)
My painting has a lot to do with how I've been feeling lately, after preparing for our event at CPO...sending out the 'call for artists' for our next gallery installation in July...and trying to pack for a trip--sometimes feeling like everything is happening all at the same time. I have felt a little 'out of control' when it comes to my emotions, sometimes being frustrated and nervous about a situation, and at the same time excited and even happy. Although a little emotion is a good thing, I am glad to be going away to where there are no distractions, or Internet...or even a phone. I need a little break from everything, in a quiet place where I can just paint, and BE. And so my latest painting is aptly called 'Mixed Emotions'...stop by at the BAC (corner of Broadway and Maiden in Albany,) and check it out!
And now, I can finally have that long awaited vacation I've been thinking about since winter...once I pack the car full of clothes, food, art supplies and cats (yes, they're coming too!) I will be on my way. Hopefully we'll get to Schroon Lake safely, with a limited amount of feline complaints and heavy traffic. And then, let the relaxing begin!!
