I seem to have got my Mojo back, over the past few months I have had oodles of ideas but no Mojo to do them. Well all that has changed, my time is split between working with Husband, teaching and painting; it has been hard to prioritise the painting as income must come first.
I gave myself a good talking to and have decided to deal with things head on, this means less exhibitions as they wear me out and more time spent on painting for me; this won't be easy with family and work but it will mean less deadlines and running around. Pheew. Now that that decision has been made I can enjoy painting again, so often as artists we feel obligated to exhibit work to sell, sometimes that dictates our whole waking hours, by deciding to do less, I will do more, income will come not from painting pictures but from what i do outside of that. My paintings will spring to life as I will not be thinking commercially but painting the things I love in the style I love. I have cleaned the kitchen and am off to paint.
