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.
