creating a new studio, no time to paint....

For the last few weeks I have focused on creating a NEW STUDIO SPACE which I LOVE! The natural light and surrounding trees inspire my art students and myself.

SO WHY AM I NOT PAINTING?? I have a few good excuses such as my paints  aren't where they used to be, my rhythm is off, I have a new puppy to take care of (very cute one!) and then there were the fires that unnerved me and all of a sudden the beautiful trees surrounding my house looked more like possible fuel for fire than inspiration. 

Creativity takes courage
— Henri Matisse

I FORGOT that the gift of art making that I encourage so many of my students to do, I had not had the courage to embrace myself. Im not down on myself, just noticing what happened...Im excited to see what comes out when I get into my new space.
