Good Things

I've been lucky enough to be able to spend a few extra hours in the Artistphere even during the holidays.  That makes me unbelievably happy.  For the first time in a long time, the various pieces of work in various stages of process leave me with a calm feeling.  Not panic.  No urge to rush, to do over, to make it perfect.  Permission came out of Nowhere - to put something aside when it seems "stuck" and just pick up something else and begin where I last left off.  It's become a soothing process to have multiple back up projects.  Therefore, whatever mood I'm in - I have a project.  If it's hand work, its here.  If its machine work... there's these.  Need a little painting and drawing time?  Yep.  I can bounce and be productive at the same time.  A not so novel idea that finally found me.
