I was a stage director, choreographer, producer and teacher. In 2003, I became a mom, and in 2006, and in 2009. Along the way, I became a photographer. Then I regressed to my early youth art pursuits: painting, drawing, collaging and writing. So I called myself a Professional Dabbler, but that didn’t quite feel right. Now I consider myself to be a Multi-Passionate Artist.
I finished this painting about a month ago. So much seems to have changed since then, and this painting languishes at my studio without me these days. But I was thrilled to have painted it and look forward to visiting it soon.
In the meantime, hopefully we can all wake soon to brighter days.
Sometimes I need to get away. Sometimes I need to connect with friends who really, really *get* anxiety. Sometimes I walk. Sometimes I take photographs along the way. Later, I can look back at the images and remind myself of what took my breath away but in a GOOD way.
Breathe. Now do it again. Repeat. This too shall pass.
