A Million Thoughts
A million thoughts are running through my head today and like a traffic jam they are making my brain freeze in place. I have a big women's event tonight that I need to do so many things for and can't do anything yet until the kids get home from school because a handyman is here fixing all my house boo boos. I just saw the cutest project in a craft book that I want to try as I was trying to distract myself and now I want to go get everything to do that project and can't do that either. I have a painting started in my art room that is begging for attention and a sketch that I drew last night that I want to transfer to a canvas that has a background on it. I should be making Christmas cards for the card exchange tonight but I really don't want to. I think I will save myself some work and purchase some really pretty ones instead. My head is full of a conversation I had yesterday with a fellow artist. We sat at Starbucks for almost six hours talking about life and art and it was fabulous. I want to journal it all down and process some of the encouraging words she said to me. While I was sitting there waiting for her to show up I had a lady walk by me and saw my Rosie painting in the bag on the seat and asked to see it. I pulled it out and she wanted to know where I had found it. I very sheepishly said that I had painted it and she asked for my card. I had to tell her I don't have a card because I don't sale my art and she said I really should consider it because she loved my painting. As she walked away, I stood there is shock and delight. So unexpected and so encouraging. I will live off the conversation for some time. OH, so much to think about today!
