I've been gone awhile, at least it feels like it. Each day is so filled that I haven't had time to come here. Usually I feel free to blather on about everything but working on this book has taken over most of my brain and yet I don't feel I can talk about that. Yet. This is the time for deep work and concentration. Some days that's easy and some days it's imposserous.
Rice Freeman-Zachery, the author of this wonderful book, interviewed me recently for a podcast that you can listen to here. Her book is one I wish I'd owned back when I started painting and selling my work as it deals with the logistics of fitting art into a busy life. I just listened to the podcast for the first time and while it is always odd listening to myself talking, it is an informal discussion of many subjects of interest to artists and journal writers in particular.
Since my older sister arrives here in a day or so for the week of Thanksgiving, I expect I may be a little scarce (again) for awhile.
Plus my cranky old computer needs replacing and I really cringe at the thought of the learning curve associated with a new one. My old one does everything so effortlessly except navigating online. My operating system is 10.2.8 so if any of you out there are geeks you know that puts me in medieval times.
I think on Monday I am going computer shopping so there will be a little down time involved to celebrate the holiday and get the new computer up and running. Wish me luck~ and I'll be back soon.
