I have been thinking a lot about where I want my artistic pursuit to go and also why I'm even doing it in the first place. Since my blog has been about all the different things in my life I thought I would utilize it more to investigate and vent about the confusing space that is my creative impulse. Well that's at least what I'm calling it for now.
Maybe it's closer to a mid life crisis, though that term always seems to have negative connotations of one loosing ones mind and reverting back to the teen age years, and I certainly have no desire to revisit that era.
No what I've come to is that it's a part of myself that I have always denied, or pushed to the side, saved for later because of one thing or another. Most often financial reasons, but courage to express myself has certainly been another.
It feels like a total luxury to make things and yet I've been fighting for that space lately like I never have before, (balance is my next topic)
Anyway I just did this drawing/watercolor of my daughter- she has been inspiring me a lot lately. I think because she helps me remember my imagination and wonder of the world. That for no other reason I guess is one reason why I'm doing this. :)
