A Second Look

8"x10" oil
I feel like I have been away for years when in fact, it has been 5 1/2 weeks.  My daughter had a beautiful baby girl, Juniper (10lbs. 4 oz. because I know you want to know) and I have been helping them out.  I returned home ready to reclaim my other life.  So I am doing art things, but I found this painting I did before I left and never posted because I wasn't happy with it.  It was an experiment, and now that I have given it some space, it suddenly looks better to me.  There is a lesson in that.  I was taking care of my two preschool grandsons while I was away, and although we did many creative projects every day, I did no painting myself.  This made me really look at my priorities and see that for me, being an artist can't be my one and only focus.  I need times to do the other things, like be a good grandma and mom.  I came to peace with that.  Now I have to rebuild my blog friends who have given up on me over the last month and a half.  So if you see this post, and read it, please make a comment so I know I still have an audience!  And, I do appreciate you so much!
