I noticed some new comments on my last post. Has it really been over 8 months since I posted??? The comment was from my dear friend and longest cyber friend Laura who says she isn't the blog police. Hahaha Laura, you so are! I am not making excuses but life takes on twists and turns and its not always possible to fit everything in. Some things just have to sit for a while. My blog was/is one of them. Still reading Julia Cameron's books with my on line tribe and generally goofing off with them on facebook. Still trying to juggle all the things that go on in my day to day life and fit in enough time to create. What I have noticed is that there is a particular pattern that repeats itself every year without it being planned. I seem to take 3 months off from painting. Every year I notice that I down tools in December, January and February. And every year I freak out and think I am blocked and will never create again but then all of a sudden the creative urges flow and I head out to the studio and paint like a woman possessed. I am not sure why this happens. It could be seasonal. December, January and February is summertime. And the summers get pretty hot here. My studio just gets too darn hot. Well this year doesn't seem to be any different. Here it is heading towards the end of February and I went out and bought a new canvas today and then I treated myself to some new brushes. Creativity is starting to flow. I am ready ... let the painting begin!!!
