I've Been Away........

I've taken some time away from my postings.  Rethinking about where I was going with my blogging and Etsy account.  A little discouraged, cause things aren't selling.  Also, a little wound up with "Challenges" and not focusing on what I really enjoy doing the most.  That is just creating whatever comes to mind, not meeting a deadline or someone else's idea.  Frustrated with the lack of time, a day job and commute leaves little time for what I enjoy most.  I guess just a little down, and everything seems a little overwhelming, also saddened after my trip with my sister.  I'm losing my sister, my best friend, my confidant.   

Enough, I just need time to get lost in my art.  It makes the world go away, it's the best escape.  Hopefully I'll get some time this weekend.  I started a project a couple weeks ago for my daughter's beach house.  We found an old picture of my mothers graduating class from Bay City, Oregon Class of 1927.  I'm working it into a collage on an 8 x 8 canvas.  

I haven't been totally idle,  I did finish a small collage on canvas, and another Asian themed piece.  I found some fabric with Chinese letters and wanted to try it out in a collage.  
I won't be gone so long this time. 

Thanks for visiting.

So sorry you are feeling down, Cyndee. You are facing a huge loss and I agree that challenges are fun, but can leave us relying on other people's inspirations. I hope you do find time to get lost in your art - it is a great comfort.
Take care.

Gosh, Cyndee, I was feeling the same way (still am, to a certain extent!)I wonder if it's something in the air? It's just so hard to find time for these things that we love and that relax us - it becomes counterproductive in a way. But I'm glad you are back - I saw the finished piece and I love it! Hope you've been able to climb out of your slump a little, too!
