Deadlines

I was talking with a friend at work and the discussion came around to being in our 70's or 80's and looking back and saying, "I wish I had done that..." Unfortunately this year has been collapsing around me personally, healthwise, and at work but in the end it brought me back to my art - the one thing to bring me peace and the one thing I don't want to go through the rest of my life without pursuing. 

 

There's a talent show coming up at church in a couple weeks so there's a chance to show some work to  a biased audience...and get some opinions about favorite pieces. 

 

And there are two counties with art shows coming up accepting submissions the first week of April. So basically I have til around the 17th to finish any paintings I want to have framed (two week wait) and submit to the shows. Around the middle of April I'll know if they were accepted for the shows or not.

 

So pray or send me good vibes and positive energy so I can accomplish what I'm trying to do. The meds I'm on have slowed me down but I've been pushing as hard as I can. I'll do my best to keep you updated although I'll continue to be rare around here for the next week.

 

And as always, thank you for your encouragement and support and I hope your having a great day!

            I’ve come to learn its not everyone that has long hangtime or glitches. So because its slow as dirt for me, it could be running quick and easy for you. I’ll see your picture though, come hell or high water! I hope you can post it!
