I am having to create the time to spend in the studio these days. Being an Artist Mom is wonderful and frustrating. I am so blessed to be able to pursue my art. I am also blessed with my family to run - it is hard to carve out the time to spend immersed in my art.

I have spent the past year knowing that I want to have my art as my career. I have wanted so badly just to take that want and run with it and be successful. I am finding the patience now to slow down and concentrate on the art I want to create. It is hard to market a body of work I haven't fully created yet!

So, I am working in the studio for four days each week now that everyone has returned to school. I am also going to continue teaching the art classes I started this summer. I will have students once a week for an hour. I am very privelaged to spend time with these talented girls. They are a huge motivation for me!
So, here we go. Hopefully you will be seeing my blog updated more often as I work in my studio more often. I look forward to finding more Artist Moms on the web to see how they manage their time.
