Okay confession time. So I will admit to you, I got a little off track this past year. Three broken ribs, and the ensuing issues that went with them, left me unable to paint for most of 2009.
Instead, I spent the majority of the year establishing a presence, and playing games on Facebook a rather, um, addicting occupation of time.
The beginning of 2010 continued in the same pattern. My health not improving, my addiction to Facebook worsening, and my art completely off track. I did manage to muster the energy to enter one of three shows I had slated for the beginning of 2010. But only one of them.
I can not tell you how thrilled I was to receive notification that my work "Reflections" was juried into that single show!
Feeling somewhat invigorated, I dragged out the list of goals I had set for 2009. Even with my health setbacks, the only goal I hadn't accomplished, was that of getting into a National Juried Art Show. Well, that wasn't so bad at all. In fact, it left me feeling pretty good. Especially with my news from earlier this month!
Well, I said it once before, but today really is the day. I have so much news to share with you, I don't even know where to start. So first I'll say Hello! Hello! And then thank you for still following me. I've had a rough battle with Lupus recently, but am hopefully turning that corner. In fact, even if I wasn't ready to turn the corner, the amazing things happening in the artistic part of my life are kind of forcing it. *grin* So today really is the day I get back to work, updating my website and blog; dealing with the dreaded taxes, yuk; and finally getting back to the studio with all the ideas that have been building in my brain.
I am so excited to be back blogging! Today is really just to let you know I am still here, and to help me remember how to work this program. hehe. In fact, I am still drinking my morning coffee and trying to get a handle on this again. hehe.
So...Welcome back to my home! Sit down, grab a cup of coffee, and let's talk art. :)
