Lately I have spent many hours in reflection, though it seems that is how I spend much of my life. There have been a few changes in my life recently with more looming on the horizon...all good, mind you, but change is difficult for a gal like me. I just want to hole up in my studio and paint. Those are the best days. And yet, I would miss out on so much if I did only that. So many wonderful relationships and opportunities have come my way that I know this is all good for me but it can be hard to push this crab out of her shell (I am a Cancer after all). Plus, everything I experience in my life does find its way into my work at some point in some way, which is always a good thing.
