Switcheroo

There's a lot going on behind the scenes. I feel earth and time are shifting as I evolve and take on new challenges. What facilitated this change? Did I just wake up and decide, I'm going to do something different today? I'm trying to make decisions that align with my values and goals instead of getting stuck in day to day problems, I want to rise above the trivial and aim for something higher.

Public relations is something that demands confidence, assertiveness and social skills. So at the opening of the "Reflections" and "CONNECT" shows, I hobnobbed with other artists and discussed their work. Some wanted my autograph for the catalogue. Some were interested in my work as well. 

To be honest, I would have liked to have sold a painting opening night as some other lucky souls, but c'est la vie. People's tastes are unpredictable. It was a step forward for me to be in these two shows. The CONNECT show will run until March 20th.

So I plan to take some paintings out of the Art Studios Traveling Art Show and approach other places. When you are submitting writing or art, there may be costs involved. But I believe it's worth it.

I was told that I am moving in many directions at once. Is it healthy to be involved in many different things simultaneously? It's a juggling act. 

If I reflect on the past year, I see growth in leaps in bounds. I'm on the crest. It's important to maintain perspective and objectivity and not expect too much.
