Sometimes I feel rather obsessive about this art life of mine. I can't seem to not paint...ever. I travel with paint and my favorite holidays include demos or plein aire painting and, to be honest, I'm not much of an outdoor painter as I tend to prefer my studio....unless it involves a lovely glass of wine and snacks. When I'm asked how I find the time to paint, I honestly have to say that I have to find time to do other things...you know, like clean my house, work and volunteer. I feel the same about reading. When my daughters were born I had a playpen in my studio space so that I could continue to paint as they played or slept. And I'm grateful for this obsession as it grounds me and gives me absolute joy.
