work in progress – Free Range.
This has been a hectic week – for lots of domestic and head-splitting reasons. I missed my usual Dr Sketchy (burlesque life-drawing), and am still burning for the lost opportunity. It’s my little bit of self-indulgence and a super-great way to forget about the domestic responsibilities that are a part of every mother’s life – working or not.
I do love being a mother. I’m CRAZY for my kids, and it’s such an honour to have them in my life, and to be able to do things with and for them. But a break from the everyday can be a good thing too, and since it’s not immediately possible, and it is another month or so until I can do a Sketchy session, I’m going – to be frank – a little NUTS! I must say, however, intense conflicted feelings bubbling away, usually have a good effect on my art. Uncomfortable but interesting. I don’t like it, but try to harness it in a constructive way.
If only I had a teeny bit more time to paint we might be able to strike a happy medium. 😉
