something new

New paintings will be hitting my etsy shop on Monday.

I have been working like mad lately on the new venture and its pretty much taking my every waking moment. I had a bit of a breakthrough yesterday to the point where i said....."i can do this...i can really DO this". I wake up in the middle of the night because i can't sleep. the excitement is taking over. i have been drawing and brainstorming and calculating. yes, a little!

sometimes i find that when i come hear to my art blog....i don't feel i have much to say anymore. i feel like a broken record that keeps repeating itself. i start to type and i say to myself "i've already said this" or touched on this in some way. is it because we are creatures of pattern? I just have this weird feeling that this new batch of paintings will be close to the last of them before the end of the year. its so funny feeling my hands type that. although i will say i have several backgrounds on canvas already waiting to be tackled. i don't know. i feel my focus has shifted just a bit to get this new shop up and running.
its weird because yesterday i received an email from Teesha telling us that 2012 will be the last artfest and i could so relate to the words she wrote. 
a shift. 
a new direction. 

still doing what i love.
but something new.
i can't wait to see what the future holds for Teesha and her retreats.....

and i can't wait to tell you what I've been working on!!!! it feels like when i first started painting. 
the newness.
the butterflies. 
the beautiful planning.
the organizing. 

i hope to have new shop going by sometime in December. but i have so much work to do. and in saying that i may be absent just a bit from this blog until then.

happy creating my friends.
