The funny thing was when I was tossing and turning trying to go to sleep wondering if I had been kidding myself about being an artist, all I wanted to do was paint. So, I got up and I continued on this painting in progress. She still has a ways to go, but already she has answered my question.
No matter what anyone thinks, I can no longer imagine my life without art!
It's that simple.
And now, I wish you good night!
Update: It is morning now, a blustery and rainy morning - simply wonderful! Painting last night did the trick. I feel good. After all, it's not our definition that matters, it's how much we enjoy each moment. And today, I plan to enjoy my day - including my afternoon at the print studio.
I hope you'll be able to enjoy your day as well, no matter what you have planned!!
P.S. Just wait until you see the rest of this painting - I love it!!!
