I am such a visual person it is hard for me to keep up with my blog. I don't know what to say.
But when it comes to having words floating around my brain there are plenty.
I feel I am a roller coaster; full of belief and energy that I am headed the right direction and then doubt sneaks in and takes the comfortable seat. Or I just love the moments when I get a brilliant idea and I paint it and I still love it even the next day. Then for some unknown reason I will tell myself it isn't good because it doesn't look just like the other paintings. Boy do the words swim around my head like a tornado.
I guess with every field and career there are moments of doubt
Well it is another day and there are plenty of things to do, dolls to make, paintings to finish, choices to make
I wonder if others feel like I do....

I have been working on some tiny dolls. Some will become pendants. I call them my Imaginary Friends. They are sorta like a worry doll except it is like a friend. You can tell it the Good the Bad and the ugly and it will never judge you or get mad at you!!! We all need friends like that!

I don't know if other's think about it but I do. What will happen when I am gone. Through out my life I have made a lot of things and have sent them out into the world. As I see it, it is like sending my souls energy out to touch another soul. I have work all around the globe. Sometimes I wonder if I have touched the souls of others, have I made a difference in someone's life.
I also think of when I am gone what will happen to the things I call art. Will it become somebody's trash, burden or will it become more precious, more valuable.
I know there will never be an answer so I must keep doing what my heart tells me to do. Go make more art!

Some people say I am quite prolific. Maybe I am but I am also a very disciplined person with a strong desire to create. There are times when I am not able to paint, so during those times I create other things. I always have several different kinds of projects working at the same time. I have found this method helps my paintings. I don't over work them and it gives me time away from my work., so when I do return I have a fresh eye.
I used to judge myself, being scattered but now I see it differently. I am embracing all the sides of me, all my creations.

Well here we are in 2010 and I thought things were going to change. Yes there have been some changes around me, not necessarily the ones I would have chose. But one thing I am excited about is my diligent practice of making art. I am working on new paintings and art dolls. Of course when you make things you have to find homes for them. For me that seems to be the harder of the two. Here are a couple of samples of new work.
