Finished a painting I’ve been working on for some time and it flew right out the door to the gallery and then flew out the gallery’s door to a happy home! I feel very blessed to make art that people love!
Had a lovely time in Richmond doing one of my favorite shows, the Richmond Craft Mafia’s Spring Bada-Bing. I love the City and the people are just as lovely. My sweet friend Betsy of Betsy Browne Pottery shared my booth with her beautiful pottery pieces. Here are some snapshots of the booth!
Took a trip to see my parents at Harker’s Island and they let me play in their glass studio! Had lots of fun being able to draw pieces out that I had been thinking about making for some time. I managed to get one piece finished and I had fun using beach glass that had washed up on the banks of the island that my mom found in the piece. Pictures to come soon of the finished piece!
I’ve always made goals of things to accomplish before the end of the day. Normally, this list of goals most of the time does get complete and are achievable. Lately, my little list of things to accomplish has been thrown out the door because my time has been filled up with my little boy and dedicated snuggle time.
Days like today when it’s raining, gloomy and chilly outside make snuggle time a must. I’ve really been enjoying this quiet time that just him and I share and know that it will only be here for a short time in our life. So my plan has been to cut myself a break and really taking advantage of this time and really enjoying this little one. From here on out days will pass and he will grow up so quickly that I will not be able to remember these times. These little moments are too precious to forget and the quietness, solitude and letting yourself go in these moments of stillness is something that I am very thankful to have been blessed with.
All the things that need to get done will eventually find their way to completion but for now I think that I will dream, snuggle and enjoy this time that is now. I encourage you to slow down, sit in solitude and take in the moment.
