I ran into this little guy (he is smaller than my little finger) when I was running with my dog yesterday. Isn't he a doll :-). Work has picked up a little, so today and tomorrow are paint days and the rest of the week is devoted to making money. Having two more days to paint is such a blessing. I have one more done (pictures soon) the big one on it's way and another just started.
My paintings are labor intensive, so I can't hurry them, but I feel as though I am on my way to having a new body of work very soon. I am learning some lessons lately (all the time really :-).
One lesson is that my body can only do so much and as I get older I realize this more and more.
That means I honor my body by resting when I am tired, sounds simple, but I wonder how much of the time we don't listen when our body talks to us? I am also learning to honor my time.
I have lost some work because of my prices, but I feel my time is precious and I am not willing to
give myself away for a few dollars. This is a hard one to stick to, especially when money is needed, but it is something I really believe in and I am sticking to it. Life teaches me more and more, that if I trust and stick to my guns things work out. On that note I will sign off, my paintings are waiting for me :-). Happy Monday! XOXO
